The CBI is likely to question Commonwealth Games Organising Committee Chairman Suresh Kalmadi soon in connection with its probe into the alleged corruption during the Queen's Baton Relay held in London last year.

Official sources said Kalmadi's name cropped up during the questioning of arrested former OC officials T S Darbari and Sanjay Mahendroo.

They said once their statements are gone through and analysed, Kalmadi, who is currently in China for the Asian Games, could be summoned. A close aide of Kalmadi, who plans to return to India on November 27 after the Asian Games, said the OC chairman has not received any CBI summons yet.

Sources said the CBI will also seek the help of the Enforcement Directorate to unravel the alleged forex violations.

CBI is expected to question other OC officials as part of its probe into the alleged corruption.

Both Darbari and Mahendroo were arrested by the CBI as part of its probe into unearthing the money trail in a forgery and cheating case relating to the QBR.

The ED is also probing the case and had earlier questioned both the officials including certain other colleagues of theirs.
