Sacked CWG organising committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi told the Delhi high court on Tuesday that he was going to the London Olympics in his individual capacity and would not be attending meetings. “I'm not going to attend meetings in London on behalf of either the Government of India or any Indian sports body. My fundamental right to travel cannot be curtailed,” Kalmadi's counsel Mukul Rohatgi told the court.

A Bench headed by acting chief justice AK Sikri is hearing a petition filed by lawyer Rahul Mehra urging the court to restrain Kalmadi from going to London, saying the presence of a “tainted person” like him would “tarnish” India’s image.
