New Delhi: Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday refused to react on the arrest of sacked CWG Organising
Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi by CBI in connection with
irregularities in awarding contract during the Commonwealth
Games.

The chief minister chose not to respond when asked
about Kalmadi`s arrest.
Kalmadi was arrested by CBI for allegedly awarding a
contract for the Commonwealth Games to a Swiss company at an
inflated rate of Rs 141 crore in a "pre-meditated" manner.

Immediately after conclusion of the Games last
October, Dikshit had said the "suspicion" of corruption in
the Commonwealth Games was on the Organising Committee headed
by Kalmadi.
Dikshit had said the corruption could have taken place
in the activities undertaken by the Organising Committee to
which the Central government had given loans to the tune of Rs
1,600 crore.

Later Kalmadi, pointing an accusing finger at Dikshit,
had said all those involved in preparation of the event should
be summoned by CBI.
