Mohali: The Mohali stadium saw the high-voltage India-Pakistan World Cup semi final, it is now hosting the Indian Premier League and it has been home to many thrilling Tests. But the cricket board has run up over Rs.11 crore in unpaid bills to Punjab Police for providing security for cricket matches.
Though the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) has made huge profits by hosting international matches at its stadium here, around 10 km from the state capital Chandigarh, it is yet to pay for the massive security arrangements, say police.
"We have sent so many letters and reminders to the PCA authorities about pending security bills, but to no avail. I think that now the issue has gone beyond the hands of police and it would be settled at the government's level," Gurpreet Singh Bhullar, senior superintendent of police (Mohali), told IANS.
