Former president of District Football Association Srinagar has been arrested in connection with the Jammu and Kashmir Football Association (JKFA) biryani scam, sources said on Tuesday.

Sources said Fayaz Ahmad Sofi was allegedly involved in embezzlement of funds meant for the development of football in the region.

The scam involved misappropriation of funds meant for organizing football tournaments and events.

Sofi’s arrest comes after investigation into the matter, which has revealed the involvement of several other officials of the JKFA and DFA.

Sources said more arrests are expected in the case as further investigation is still going on.

In August 2022, Jammu and Kashmir Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has filed an FIR against the Jammu and Kashmir Football Association (JKFA) officials for misappropriation of funds to the tune of Rs 45 lakh received from the Jammu and Kashmir Sports Council. (KNS)
