CBI files charge sheet against Kalmadi, others

as the main accused in a corruption case in awarding a games-related contract to a Swiss firm.

Submitting the charge sheet in a local court here  the CBI said that Kalmadi awarded lucrative contract to the Swiss firm to install a Timing-Scoring-Result –  TSR – system for the Commonwealth Games at an exorbitant cost, causing a loss of over  90 crore rupees to the exchequer.

Besides Kalmadi, the agency has named two companies and eight persons including former Organisisng Committee Secretary General Lalit Bhanot and former Director General V K Verma as accused and sought their prosecution under various provisions of the Indian Penal Code  dealing with criminal conspiracy, forging documents and using fake documents as genuine. Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh took the charge sheet into record and fixed Monday for taking up the issue of cognizance.

Others who have been chargesheeted include A K Reddy, Managing Director of Hyderabad-based AKR Constructions, and the promoters of Faridabad-based Gem International, A K Madan and P D Arya.

The Faridabad firm was outsourced a substantial portion of the contract that Swiss Timing-Omega won for the Commonwealth Games.

The charge sheet, which has indicted various accused for committing offences under the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Corruption Act, has also named the two companies, AKR Constructions and Swiss Timing-Omega.

Reddy, Madan and Arya are on the run with the CBI, armed with non-bailable warrants, hunting for them. The charge sheet has named over 50 witnesses to prove the allegations against Kalmadi and others.

While Kalmadi, Prasad and Lal were arrested on 26th April, Bhanot and Verma were arrested on 23rd February.

They are presently lodged in Tihar Jail. Kalmadi had earlier sought bail from the court, which has reserved its order on his plea for Saturday.
