The Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Thursday ordered CBI probe into the multi-crore scam haunting the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA), with former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah as one of the accused.

A division bench, comprising Chief Justice N. Paul Vasanthakumar and Justice B.L. Bhat, pronounced the order in Srinagar. Court directed the CBI to complete the probe within six months in the multi-crore scam, which many believe runs up to Rs. 113 crore.

The accused are charged under Sections 406, 168 and 120-B of the Ranbir Penal Code (RPC) for allegedly making the sports body a lending agency and for operating many bogus accounts. Meanwhile Dr Farooq Abdullah said that he welcomes the decision ” I have learnt that high court has asked CBI to investigate the scam,I am happy because they don’t beleive in their own police , now CBI will inquire and everything will be clear as who has siphoned the money where it went , everything will be clear ” Dr Farooq Abdullah said .
