Recently, Dibyendu Banta has addressed a Press Conference in which he alleged financial misappropriation and other irregularities on Atanu Lahiri . Mr. Barua had subsequently complained to All India Chess Federation to enquire into the alleged irregularities.
“Now that the enquiry has been completed the report has been submitted. I have been completely exonerated of all the charges and the allegations are found to be without any basis and devoid of merit. I have always maintained that I am open enquiry by any agency in India and the Truth shall prevail. If found guilty I am ready to face action as directed by the law of the Land but if the charges are proved fictitious, the people responsible should be brought to justice.” Lahiri said, adding that he will now take legal steps against Barua and the people aiding him.
