CWG scam: Kalmadi gets new date to appear before CBI

Kalmadi had expressed his inability to appear before the CBI citing his foreign visit, saying he would return home only after April 19. But even after returning from his visit abroad, he did not turn up before the sleuths saying he was still not in Delhi, sources said.

The CBI today conveyed to him to appear before it on April 25 for clarifying details gathered during the trip of two-member team to London in connection with cases related to alleged irregularities in hiring AM Films and AM Car and Van Hire Limited during QBR held in 2009, sources in the agency said.

The team has managed to speak to the London-based owner of both the companies -- Ashish Patel -- who has given a lot of information and documents with regard to the allegedly overvalued deal. The documents and records made available by Patel will be provided to the CBI officially in reply to their Letter Rogatory issued to British Authorities, sources said.

AM Car and Van Hire company in London was engaged during Queen's Baton Relay in 2009 to provide services like taxis for the guests and OC members. The AM films was hired to provide display monitors during the event. The team had also questioned other companies which were in fray for the lucrative contract, they said.

The agency has sent a two-member team comprising Additional Director V K Gupta and DIG S K Palsania to London which has got some "clinching" details about the payments made to the two companies allegedly with the sanction of Kalmadi, they said. CBI sources said the team now wants Kalmadi to reply to the new pieces of information on the monetary transactions with the two companies.
