The Delhi High Court, on Wednesday, refused to order a separate inquiry into the allegations of corruption against Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi.

A bench of chief justice Dipak Misra and justice Manmohan disposed of two public interest litigations that demanded the inquiry saying a central government-appointed committee is already investigating the charges. The bench, however, allowed the petitioners to file any document as evidence with the committee.

One of the suits, filed by lawyer Ajay K Agrawal, sought termination of Kalmadi and an independent audit and sealing of records related to tenders, work measurements and expenses above Rs 1 lakh.

Besides Kalmadi, the petition also made the cabinet secretary, youth affairs and sports secretary and the Central Bureau of Investigation as respondents.
