Jarnail wrests charge

According to a letter written by Singh to Sports Ministry on Tuesday, both Kalmadi and Bhanot did not return “handing over/taking over charge report”, sent to them a day before, to the CEO’s office.

The letter, a copy of which is available with PTI, said that following the Sports Ministry’s directive on removing the duo, “handing over/taking over charge reports were prepared and given on January 24, 2011 to the officers concerned in their personal staff for getting them signed from Chairman/Secretary General.

“The charge reports have not been received by us up to 12 noon (January 25). Therefore, I have taken over charge myself,” Singh said in the letter to Sports Ministry. Both Kalmadi and Bhanot, who were removed as Chairman and Secretary General of OC by the government, have been interrogated by the CBI in connection with the Commonwealth Games related corruption cases. Key aides of former OC head are also being questioned by the investigating agency.
