A local court on Tuesday issued summons against three former Commonwealth Games (CWG) organising committee officials and a UK-based  businessman in a case of alleged financial irregularities during the 2009 Queen’s baton relay in London before the games.

Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh after taking cognisance of the CBI chargesheet, issued summons against the six accused, which includes two UK-based firms, to appear before it on November 27. “I have gone through the documents filed with the chargesheet. There is sufficient material to take cognisance of the offences mentioned in the chargesheet against the four accused persons and two companies,” the court said.

The six accused in the case are - OC Joint Director-General T S Darbari, Deputy Director General Sanjay Mahendroo and treasurer M Jaychandran, London-based businessman Ashish Patel and two firms AM Car and Van Hire Ltd and AM Films.

The court issued summons for November after CBI told the court that Patel and the two firms are based in UK and hence it would take around three months to serve the summonses.
