New Delhi, Aug 5: Commonwealth Games Organising Committee (OC) treasurer, Anil Khanna, resigned from the post on Thursday, Aug 5.

Anil Khanna resigned following the allegations that his son's firm secured contract for laying synthetic courts at RK Khanna Tennis Stadium.

Media reported that his son Aditya's parent company, Rebound Ace, got the contract for laying 14 synthetic surfaces at tennis stadium.

Reports also said that top Indian tennis players were unhappy with the re-laid synthetic surface which is believed to increase injury risk and rejected by Australian Open.

However Khanna defended the issue saying that was not involved while granting the contract to the Australian firm.
