Hyderabad Cricket Association Charged For Fraud

Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) president Arshad Ayub, former president G Vinod and seven other leaders have been charged by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) for alleged misappropriation of public money which amounts to 4 crore rupees. Not just that, they have urged a trial court to try and punish them under the provisions of Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act and the Indian Penal Code, according to a report by the Times of India.

Deputy Superintendent of Police, M Madhusudan Reddy filed the charge sheet and confirmed that they fall under the purview of the definition of a public servant and hence can be punished under PC Act. More so, because they were entrusted with funds of Sports Authority of AP (SAAP). All the nine accused officials appeared before the ACB Court on Monday and judge Victor Immanuel recorded their presence and directed them to appear before the court on November 28 again.

Arshad Ayub is a former Indian off-spinner who played for India in between 1987 and 1990. In the early 2000s, Ayub moved to cricket administration and became the HCA President in 2010. In 2014, he became the President again.

Apart from Ayub and Vinod, most of them are current and former office bearers of HCA. Present Secretary K John Manoj, former secretary Seshadri Venkateswaran, R Devaraj, former treasurer Naresh Sharma and Kishore Kapoor of Delhi-based Star Mercantile Company have all been accused of committing the fraud. No evidence was found against another accused A Yadagiri and ACB authorities have urged the court to delete his name from the case.

The charge sheet said that the accused have misused Rs 3.30 crore for the construction of canopy at the north and south stands of Uppal Sports Stadium falls within Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation limits. Delhi-based contractor Kishore Kapoor was the person behind it. Ranga Reddy, the district collector, made it clear that the stadium cannot be used for commercial purposes. But the HCA officials violated this clause and went ahead with commercial activities inside the stadium.

Following allegations of misuse in 2013, the then President, G Vinod promised that they won’t let out any part of the stadium premises for commercial activities. Although the probe was on, there was no conclusion back then. Last year, a case was registered against current president Arshad Ayub for allegedly duping people by taking money from them on the promise of providing flats.
