Kalmadi out of Ethics Committee

"It is an established practice that members who have been jailed are dropped from the Committee," Parliamentary sources said.

The Committee, chaired by Congress MP Manikrao Gavit, oversees the moral and ethical conduct of members and examines every complaint of unethical behaviour of members.

In a charge sheet filed in May, the CBI has named Kalmadi, the former chairman of the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee, as a prime accused and the mastermind in a corruption case related to financial irregularities in awarding a Rs 141 crore contract for timing, scoring and result system for the October 2010 sporting event.
