Help Slipper thrown at Suresh Kalmadi outside court
#1
Advertisement
A slipper was hurled at former CWG organising committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi in the Patiala House Court complex in New Delhi on Tuesday.

A man threw the slipper at 66-year-old Kalmadi, who was escorted by a posse of policemen, as he entered the court complex for being produced before a special CBI court.

The person, identified as Kapil Thakur, was immediately detained, police said.

Kalmadi was being taken for production before a special CBI court after being arrested yesterday for his alleged involvement in irregularities in Commonwealth Games projects.

He has been charged with cheating, conspiracy and corruption in connection with awarding some Games contracts.

The Congress MP has been accused of awarding illegal contracts to a Swiss firm for Timing-Scoring-Result (TSR) system for the Games causing a loss of Rs 95 crore to the exchequer.

Suresh Kalmadi to be in CBI custody for eight days

Suresh Kalmadi , arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation for his role in the timing scam related to the 2010 Commonwealth Games , was on Tuesday remanded to CBI custody for eight days.

As Kalmadi made his way to the Patiala House court premises, his smiles gave way to shock after a man hurled a leather slipper at him. It, however, landed a couple of yards away from him. The man, identified as Kapil Thakur from Madhya Pradesh, was overpowered by Delhi Police cops and whisked away for questioning.

Kalmadi has maintained that the decisions taken by the Games organising committee were vetted by various committees comprising senior bureaucrats. Inside the courtroom, his counsel argued there were records to show that then sports minister MS Gill had approved the deal for which Kalmadi was arrested. The court, however, remained unimpressed, and sent him to CBI custody for eight days.

Kalmadi was arrested on Monday on charges of conspiring to award the contract for Games timing systems to Switzerland-based Swiss Timing Ltd -Omega at an inflated cost of 141 crore, causing 95 crore loss to the exchequer.

CBI had on March 23 arrested sacked secretary-general of the Games organising committee, Lalit Bhanot, and then director-general VK Verma in the case. They are in Tihar jail.

CBI on Monday also arrested two other former members of the committee, Surjit Lal, who was deputy director general (procurement) and ASV Prasad, who was DDG (sports). More arrests are imminent, a CBI source said.

The charge against Kalmadi and his accomplices is that they awarded the contract to the Swiss company in a pre-meditated and calculated manner, brushing aside the claims of a competitor, MSL-Spain.

The Spanish company, which had quoted 46 crore for installing the timing equipment at various venues, had provided the system to the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games. It was "wrongfully eliminated, thereby causing pecuniary benefit to the bidder left in the fray," the CBI alleges.

Kalmadi sacked, Malhotra named IOA acting president

New Delhi, Apr 25 : A day after his arrest on corruption charges, Suresh Kalmadi's 15-year tenure as the IOA president came to an abrupt end after he was sacked from the post and veteran sports administrator VK Malhotra was 'unanimously' named as the acting president.

The swift action to end Kalmadi's reign as the supremo was taken by the IOA officials in a meeting chaired by Malhotra himself, citing clause 13B of the constitution which empowers the vice-president to take interim charge in the absence of the president.

Malhotra said he will call a meeting of the IOA Executive Board at the earliest in consultation with the Secretary General Randhir Singh, who is out of town, and discuss the situation arising out of the arrest of Kalmadi.

"IOA constitution is very clear, there cannot be vacuum and work of the IOA will have to continue.
