State asks GCA to halt financial transactions

Panaji, May 4:
State government’s committee formed to probe into financial misappropriation in Goa Cricket Association (GCA) has asked the association to stop financial transactions till the  report is submitted.
Goa government has formed two-member committee to probe into the financial misappropriation and irregularities in GCA, following complaints by local clubs.
Former GCA secretary Chetan Desai, who heads the committee, today asked the association not to have any financial transactions till they submit the report.
The formal inquiry into the affairs of GCA would start on May 7, Desai told PTI, adding that he has also sought a police protection during the probe as the committee intends to extensively raid the office of GCA at Porvorim near here to get the relevant documents.
The application for police protection is moved at Porvorim police station.
GCA, headed by Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) former vice president Dayanand Narvekar, has been accused of indulging in financial irregularities.
Narvekar was also probed by Election Commission of India (ECI) for using his post as GCA chief to lure voters in the recently held Goa Legislative Assembly elections. PTI
