CWG graft case: Two accused granted bail
New Delhi: A CBI special court here hearing a corruption case related to the 2010 Commonwealth Games Thursday granted bail to two officials of a company and rejected the bail plea of an official of another company.
All the three were arrested for alleged irregularities in awarding a Rs.141 crore contract for timing, scoring and result equipment for the Games held in New Delhi.
Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Judge Talwant Singh allowed the bail application of A.K. Madan and P.D. Arya, promoters of Gem International, on separate charges of being proclaimed offenders. They had earlier got bail in the corruption case.
Now the two will be allowed to leave the jail.
The court dismissed the bail plea of A.K. Reddy, of Hyderabad-based A.K.R. Constructions, in the corruption case but allowed his bail application in the separate charge of being a proclaimed offender. He will continue to be in jail.
CWG Organising Committee`s former chief Suresh Kalmadi and eight others accused in the case have already been released on bail.
The individuals and the two companies were charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code for cheating, criminal conspiracy and forgery and under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
