Decision on Suresh Kalmadi’s London visit todayZeenews Sports Bureau

New Delhi: In response to a Public Interest Litigation, the Delhi HC on Tuesday will decide whether to allow Suresh Kalmadi to visit London for the Olympics beginning from Friday.

The plea made by advocate Mr Rahul Mehra has sought the court`s direction to restrain Mr Kalmadi from going to London on the ground that he is facing trial in a corruption case and cannot be allowed to represent the country in an international event.


A Division Bench of Acting Chief Justice Mr AK Sikri and Mr Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw had earlier sought the reply of sacked Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief to Mr Mehra`s pleas within three days.

The Bench asked Mr Kalmadi, scheduled to leave for the Games on 26 July as the president of the Asian Athletes Association and also the Member Council of International Association of Athletes Federation, not to leave the country prior to his scheduled date of departure.

The Lok Sabha MP and 10 others have been charge-sheeted by the CBI under various provisions of the IPC and the Prevention of Corruption Act for allegedly "illegally" awarding contract to install Timing, Scoring and Results (TSR) system for the 2010 Commonwealth Games to Swiss Timing, causing a loss of over Rs 90 crore to the exchequer.
