Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah has landed into trouble, after the CBI has filed a chargesheet against him and three others, in a case alleging misappropriation of Rs 43.69 crore, The Hindu has reported.

As per the report, the matter pertains to the Jammu and Kashmir cricket association which received about Rs 112 crore from BCCI between 2002 and 2011 out of which Rs 43.69 crore was allegedly siphoned off. According to the reports in the media, Abdullah headed the J&K cricket association from 1980 to 2015 when he was finally removed over allegations of corruption.

Besides Abdullah, the chargesheet has been filed against erstwhile general secretary Mohammed Salim Khan, treasurer Ahsan Ahmed Mirza and a banker Basheer Ahmad Misgar.

The case in this matter was filed in March 2012, which as per a Livemint report, was filed by the associations’s treasurer Manzoor Wazir. It has been alleged that the funds which were sanctioned for the development of infrastructure were pocketed by the accused.

More than three years later in September 2015, the High Court directed that the case be transferred to the CBI, following which an FIR was lodged. The CBI has since then alleged criminal conspiracy and breach of trust in this matter. As a result of the FIR, Abdullah and others have been booked under sections 120 B and 409 of the Ranbir Penal Code (RPC).

Following the filing of the chargesheet, Abdullah has been quoted as claiming that he has full faith in the judicial system and would fully cooperate with the court’s proceedings under this matter. His son Omar Abdullah posted a tweet where he confidently affirmed that his father would be found innocent at the end of the legal proceedings.
