Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi will appear before the CBI on or after January 3. The CBI has been probing Kalmadi’s role  in connection with the conduct of Queens Baton Relay  in London.


The probe agency has alleged that cars and video screens were hired at exorbitant rates and without following tender process. Two FIRs have been registered in this regard by the CBI. Sources said Kalmadi will also be questioned about a blackmail note recovered from his residence.

The CBI on Wednesday questioned Kalmadi’s three close aides — Manoj Bhore, PK Srivastava and AK Sinha. HTC
