Highlight Story

The Delhi High Court on Monday sought the CBI stand on bail pleas of two promoters of a Faridabad-based firm for allegedly securing a contract for a Swiss firm for installing the timing-scoring-result (TSR) system for 2010 Commonwealth Games at an exorbitant cost.

Issuing a notice to CBI on bail pleas of private firm Gem International promoters Anil Madan and Purushottam Dev Arya, Justice A K Pathak sought its reply by July 5.

After securing the contract to install the TSR system for the Games at an exorbitant rate, the Swiss firm Swiss Omega had given the job to its authorised representative Gem International.

CBI has so far arrested CWG Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi and five others but Madan and Arya have been evading arrest and the trial court recently declared them Proclaimed Offender (PO).

In his bail plea, Madan has said he is physically-challenged and has been suffering from life threatening ailments including heart problem and spondylitis.

According to CBI, Gem International, which was a sub-contractor for 'Swiss Timing', further sub-contracted to AKR Constructions. Both Swiss Timing and AKR Construction have also been chargesheeted by CBI.
