2012 London Olympics: Delhi HC issues notice to Suresh KalmadiThe Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued notice to Suresh Kalmadi on a PIL seeking to restrain the sacked Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chairman from going to the London Olympics.

Kalmadi cannot leave the country before 26th July. He also has to reply to the notice within 3 days. The next hearing, meanwhile, is scheduled on 24th July, according to a news website.

Continuing its protest over the possibility of Suresh Kalmadi`s presence in the London Olympics, Clean Sports India, a movement for corruption-free sports in the country, had earlier wrote a letter to IOC, requesting it to cancel the sacked CWG Organising Committee chief`s accreditation for the Games.


"This move of him going to London, while his prosecution/ trial is under progress, has generated huge public outrage in India. We would request you to kindly bring it to the notice of the organising committee of London Olympics 2012 that Mr. Kalmadi visiting London to attend the Games can have serious consequences," CSI said in the letter signed by its convenor BVP Rao and acting president Ashwini Nachappa.

"It is in London that the CWG 2010 scam broke on Mr. Kalmadi`s misuse of funds allocated to the opening ceremony of Queen`s Baton Relay," CSI wrote.

CSI had earlier expressed disappointment at the Delhi court`s decision to allow Kalmadi, accused in a Games-related graft case, to go to the London Games.


"One of the charges levelled against him is that he made huge money on hiring temporary toilets, vehicles and video screens arranged for the function at Buckingham Palace. So his corruption did not even spare the dignity of the Queen.
