Members of the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association working committee have called for the resignation of the current chairman, Muhammad Aslam Goni, and for fresh elections to be held by the end of next month in the wake of alleged financial scam that was uncovered earlier this month.
On March 10 the police registered a case filed by association chairman Muhammad Aslam Goni against general secretary - and former treasurer - Ahsan Mirza and chief administrative officer Mohammad Saleem Khan for allegedly opening and operating bogus association bank accounts into which money received from the BCCI had been siphoned off.
On Wednesday, a substantial majority of the 62 working committee members of the JKCA demanded that Goni resign. "He has mismanaged the affairs of the association and is even misleading [association president] Farooq Abdullah," Mehboob Iqbal, a former chairman of the association said. We demand stern action against those office bearers against whom the association has lodged an FIR against."
