New Delhi, Feb 01 (Agencies): The interim report submitted by the VK Shunglu Committee regarding swindles made in Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010 has recommended that criminal cases be registered against Prasar Bharti CEO BS Lalli and Doordarshan Director General Aruna Sharma.

The report submitted by the committee to the Prime Minister’s Office has alleged that both the officials caused around Rs 135-crore loss to the exchequer for granting CWG broadcasting rights to UK-based SIS Live.

Lalli was suspended as CEO on December 21.

The committee led by VK Shunglu submitted the report to Cabinet Secretary KM Chandrasekhar on Saturday.

The 55-page report is said to have indicted two bureaucrats for granting rights to SIS Live for Rs 246 crore. Meanwhile, the actual cost of coverage was only Rs 111 crore. Shunglu has recommended that the duo be charged under provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act and that disciplinary action be taken against them.

The report also states that the contract bagged by SIS Live outsourced the broadcasting rights to Zoom Communications for Rs 176 crore and made a staggering profit of Rs 70 crore.

When Income Tax sleuths raided Zoom Communications following large-scale uproar over corruption in the CWG, it found that the company had spent only Rs 111 crore, according to records it obtained during the raid.

Work under probe worth Rs 28K cr

Commonwealth Games works under investigation are worth Rs 28,000 crore and time is required to probe them, the high-level Shunglu committee said on Tuesday.

"The total project costs worth Rs 28,000 crore. How do you expect me to complete the probe within three months," V K Shunglu said.

However, he declined to share details of the interim report submitted to the PMO on Monday on alleged  irregularities in awarding broadcasting rights during Games.

The Committee was set up by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on October 25 last year and asked to submit its findings on financial and managerial lapses within three months.

The committee has collected CWG projects related documents from different central and state government departments.

Former Secretary of Department of Personnel and Training, Shantanu Consul, is also a member of the panel.

Several projects undertaken by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), Delhi Development Authority (DDA), Public Works Department (PWD), Central Public Works Department (CPWD), RITES, Sports Ministry, Urban  Development Ministry and Games Organising Committee are under the scanner of enforcement, investigating and vigilance agencies for alleged bunglings.
