The Ministry of Youth and Sports has formed a three-member committee to investigate into alleged financial irregularities surrounding the election at All Nepal Football Association.
The committee is led by the Ministry’s joint secretary Ana Prasad Neupane and comprises of undersecretary Samanta Mani Acharya and National Sports Council, Association and Federation Department Chief Dem Bahadur Basnet.
The committee has been given 10 days to submit their report.
According to Secretary Mohan Krishna Sapkota, the committee was formed after complaints from four district football associations, which asked ANFA to check if there were any financial irregularities surrounding the election.
District football associations from Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Lalitpur and Dhading had released an audio tape as a proof that there were irregularities and showed signs of corruption during ANFA’s general elections in April 2018.
