No relief for Kalmadi

Rejecting the bail plea of the former Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief, the CBI Special Judge Talwant Singh said allegations against him were of ‘serious nature’, and that “he has caused loss to the government of India”. “Tihar Jail authorities should allow Kalmadi to sign cheques from time to time to withdraw money,” the court order said.

Meanwhile, it also dismissed the bail plea of former OC joint director general ASV Prasad, co-accused in a corruption case related to the preparations for last year’s Commonwealth Games

The CBI on May 20 filed its first chargesheet in the case against Kalmadi and 10 others, describing him as a prime accused and the mastermind in the corruption case related to financial irregularities in awarding a Rs.141 crore contract for timing, scoring and result system for the October 2010 event.
