CBI wants Kalmadi, Bhanot removed

The CBI is planning to approach the Union sports ministry to seek removal of Commonwealth Games Organizing Committee (OC) chairman Suresh Kalmadi and secretary general Lalit Bhanot from their posts, which the agency said were stumbling blocks in its probe into allegations of corruption in the mega sporting event.

CBI sources said the move came after Cabinet secretary KM Chandrasekhar conveyed to it that since the OC is no more a part of his secretariat, he cannot remove Kalmadi and Bhanot. The CBI had recently written to Chandrasekhar suggesting that Kalmadi and Bhanot should be moved out at the earliest for smooth progress of the probe, they said.
