IOA chief Narinder Batra under CBI lens for misuse of Hockey India funds

The CBI has registered a preliminary enquiry against Indian Olympic Association president Narinder Batra for alleged misuse of Rs 35 lakh of Hockey India funds, officials said on Wednesday. The central probe agency had received a complaint stating that Batra used Hockey India funds for personal benefits.

This comes against the backdrop of a turf war between Batra and Hockey India after he sent a terse communication to the sports federation, questioning the performance of the men’s hockey team in tournaments.
