The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Mumbai Crime Branch, which is probing the alleged misappropriation of BCCI funds by ex-BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya, is likely to scrutinise the personal financial details of the former Cricket Board chief.

The scrutiny of these details was necessary to find out if any BCCI money went to his personal benefit, EOW sources said, adding that the details to be scrutinised include the money spent by Dalmiya in the last one year on travelling and lodging.

Looking at the mammoth turnover of the BCCI, ascertaining misappropriation of Rs 21.74 lakh was like searching needle in a haystack, sources said, but added that the complaint lodged by the BCCI had shed light on the areas of transactions where the alleged misappropriation may have occurred.

Dalmiya, joined by former office-bearers SK Nair, Kishore Rungta and Jyoti Bajpayee appeared for the third round of questioning at the EOW office on Wednesday in tandem with Bombay High Court directions.

Although the court had directed that all of them appear for four days in succession before the EOW, they have been exempted from appearance on Thursday due to Marathi New Year festival of 'Gui-paadwa'.

All four will appear for questioning on Friday, EOW sources said.
