The Central Bureau of Investigation, which has registered against two sacked officials of the Commonwealth Games 2010 and others, related to the Queen's Baton Relay carried out searches at four places in the National Capital Region, including the office of the Organising Committee (OC).

The searches were conducted on the residential premises of the arrested officials -- the former Joint Director-General, T.S. Darbari, and the former Deputy Director-General of the OC, Sanjay Mohindroo --- and Raj Singh, a director-level officer in the OC, official sources said.

Mr. Darbari and Dr. Mohindroo were suspended initially after reports of scam started appearing in the media but were sacked later.

The first case names London-based A.M. Car/Van Services and its Director Ashish Patel besides Mr. Darbari, Dr. Mohindroo and Mr. Singh for allegedly committing offences of forgery of court records and public documents, using forged documents as genuine, criminal conspiracy and corruption.

The second case involves London-based A.M. Films, Mr. Patel, Dr. Mohindroo, Mr. Darbari and others for offences of alleged cheating, criminal conspiracy and corrupt practices.

As searches were on, the sacked officials were being questioned by the CBI about the Queen's Baton Relay for which a grand function was held in London.

The CBI had started looking into complaints related to alleged irregularities in Relay event and is examining documents.

The Enforcement Directorate had registered its first case under FEMA in the CWG after British authorities referred to the Indian High Commission a matter regarding A.M. Films, a little-known London-based company, to which a huge sum of money was allegedly transferred through the Royal Bank of Scotland.
