Gopal Subramanium agrees to head DDCA probe panel

  gopal

The former Solicitor-General, Gopal Subramanium, has formally accepted the Delhi government’s offer to head the Commission of Inquiry to probe the alleged scam in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA). Mr. Subramanium sent his letter of acceptance to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

However, Mr. Subramanium’s acceptance marks a U-turn on his earlier stand that he would agree to head the commission only after the government sought the approval from the Lieutenant-Governor and the Union Home Ministry. Mr. Subramanium while agreeing to accept the Delhi government’s offer to head the Commission of Inquiry to probe the alleged scam in the DDCA wrote that the Lieutenant-Governor’s ‘receipt’ of information from both the Cabinet and the House indicate that he “prima facie” has consented to the appointment of the commission.
