Former Board of Control for Cricket in India president Jagmohan Dalmiya has been found to have misappropriated over Rs 2.90 crore in the BCCI accounts, police said in Mumbai on Monday.

During investigations, the Economic Offences Wing has found that Dalmiya diverted funds from a bank account in Kolkata meant for paying legal fees towards various other expenses.

The expenses included paying personal phone bills, purchasing foreign exchange, car rental, hotel bills and stationary.

"Till now, we have ascertained that there has been a cheating of over 2.90 crore and we will be filing a chargesheet against Dalmiya and two others on Wednesday," Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Rakesh Maria told reporters.
