New Delhi: Absconding former CWG Organising
Committee Treasurer M Jayachandran, accused of committing
irregularities in awarding of a Games-related contract to a
Swiss firm, has been sent to Tihar Jail by a Delhi court.

Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh remanded Jayachandran in
judicial custody yesterday after he surrendered before the
court which had earlier issued a non-bailable warrant (NBW)
against him.

He failed to comply with the conditions imposed on him
after he was granted bail in another case related to the
Games held last year.
Jayachandran was also named as an accused for his role in
awarding of a contract to a Swiss firm at an exorbitant cost
for installing Timing Scoring and Results (TSR) system for the
Games.
The court had issued NBW against him and asked CBI to
arrest him by June 6.

The court had issued NBW against Jayachandran after
CBI submitted that he was not co-operating in the probe and
had stopped appearing before it after his role surfaced as
an accused in the case.
