ED questions Kalmadi in CWG case

Sacked CWG organising committee chief Suresh Kalmadi was quizzed on Monday  for nearly six hours by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with its probe into alleged forex violations in the run up to the 2010 sporting extravaganza.

During the questioning, the Pune MP was asked about other clearances that the Organising Committee (OC) of the CWG obtained from RBI to conduct overseas transactions, they said.

The agency has filed a case under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) with regard to the Queen’s Baton Relay that happened in London before the games and other funds that were brought in the country for the multi-disciplinary sporting event that were held here.

This is the first time the ED has questioned Kalmadi in detail with regard to RBI clearances that the Organising Committee had obtained while preparing for the Commonwealth Games.
Kalmadi has earlier denied any wrongdoing in the case. The ED had also asked Kalmadi to bring along certain documents.
