The Goa Cricket Association (GCA) has requested the state’s BJP government’s finance ministry to investigate legendary cricketer Kapil Dev‘s firm Dev Musco Lighting for excessively high costs and other alleged wrongdoing in the process of installing floodlights at the association’s academy.

In an interview on Friday, the association’s senior vice president Shekhar Salkar told that in the invoice presented by Dev’s company, its address listed is the same as the GCA headquarters in Porvorim, discovered near Panaji.

 Repeated strives by IANS to reach out to Kapil or any official from Dev Musco were fruitless. Salkar said that first of all the contract was granted to the company without the acceptance of the managing committee. No one knows how the contract was accorded or what other bids were received. He added that more than Rs.4 crore spent on inserting the floodlights some years back was notably more than the cost sustained by the state government to install floodlights at another stadium last year.

Salkar told that the service tax and commercial tax department, had been asked to investigate the company’s dealings with the GCA. Dev Musco Lighting Pvt. Ltd, which is a sports lighting company based in Noida. Kapil Dev is the director of this company. The GCA is currently going through a big quarrel between tww groups, one led by Salkar and the other by the GCA’s president Vindo Phadke. The government has already instigated an enquiry into the affairs of the association after the Salkar clique professed corrupt practices by Phadke.
