A Delhi court today remanded sacked CWG Organising Committee Chairman Suresh Kalmadi and two others, arrested on charges of cheating, conspiracy and corruption in the award of Games related contracts, in 14 days judicial custody. Special Judge Dharmesh Sharma sent Kalmadi, OC Joint Director General (Sport) A S V Prasad and OC Deputy Director General (Procurement) Surjit Lal to judicial custody till May 18 after the CBI said that some important witnesses are yet to be examined.
“The investigation of this case is at crucial stage.
Some important witnesses are yet to be examined. The role of accused persons Kalmadi, Prasad and Lal is of serious nature,” the CBI said.
The court accepted the plea of the CBI which said that the accused may be remanded to judicial custody in the “interest of effective and proper investigation of the case”.
