Three corrupt chargesheeted CWG organising committee (OC) officials faked documents to prove they had undertaken the requisite competitive bidding for conducting the Queen's Baton Relay (QBR) event in 2009 at London.
A chargesheet, submitted last Friday in a city court, has names as accused Sanjay Mohindroo, M Jeychandran, TS Darbari, London-based businessman Ashish Patel and two firms owned by him — AM Car & Van Hire and AM Films UK Limited that bagged two contracts for the QBR event allegedly illegally and at exorbitant rates.
"They did not make any efforts for conducting any competitive bidding and in criminal conspiracy with the London-based businessman the accused OC officials fraudulently awarded the video installation work to AM Films UK Limited at an exorbitant rate of 1.46 lakh pounds. They also forged minutes of an OC meeting held in London to justify the rate," said the source.
To create the façade of a bidding, however, the accused OC officials allegedly "placed on record forged quotation documents purportedly received from three UK-based firms — 3 Dots Vision Limited, Movie Tech London and AM films — and a fake note that compared the quotations and found AM films as the lowest bidder," said the source.
"Movie Tech’s director denied having given any quotation related to QBR, while the Scotland Yard could not trace 3 Dots Vision at its given address," said the source.
"3 Dots Vision and Movie Tech were defunct for long," said the source.
