New Delhi: There seems to be no end in sight in the row over corruption allegations in the functioning of the DDCA.

In the Aam Aadmi Party's latest salvo, former Solicitor General Gopal Subramaniam, who has been tasked by the Delhi Government with the probe into Delhi's cricket body, has now written to National Security Advisor Ajit Doval asking for a team of officers to form an SIT to carry out the investigations.

"I have sought 4-5 officers from CBI, IB and Delhi Police each for Commission,” Subramaniam said today.

The former Solicitor General, however, maintained that the SIT will be formed only if required.

Meanwhile, the Centre is set to declare the Subramaniam commission of inquiry as "void ab-initio" (invalid from the outset), according to sources in the government.

Subramaniam, however, feels that the formation of the probe panel was in tune with provisions in the Constitution.

Subramanium has sent a letter to Kejriwal formally accepting the offer to head the commission of inqury, saying its formation was in tune with provisions in the Constitution. He offered to televise the proceedings of the Commission to ensure transparency.

AAP alleges that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who headed the DDCA for 13 years till 2013, presided over fudging of accounts, illegal deals and forgery. It set up a Commission of Inquiry headed by Subramaniam to look into the matter.
