Justice Mukul Mudgal, who was appointed by the sports ministry to probe into the athletics doping fiasco, Saturday said that jailed Commonwealth Games organising Committee officials Suresh Kalmadi and Lalit Bhanot may be questioned in connection with the scandal.

The former Punjab and Haryana high court chief justice Mudgal made it clear that he would investigate into the roles of not only the athletes, doctors and coaches but also the officials, including Kalmadi and Bhanot, if required.

Kalmadi is the lifetime president of Athletics Federation of India while Bhanot is the Secretary.

"Let me see what the scope to the inquiry blossom. Today I can't say but I will certainly examine all facets, all the kind of officials involved and you know it's not a judicial committee, it's a fact finding committee so somebody has to cooperate with me voluntarily," Mudgal.

Syringes banned
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has announced that it would ban the possession of syringes outside medical areas at the 2012 Olympic Games to prevent doping by athletes.

Surprise Raid
The National Anti Doping Agency Saturday conducted a surprise raid at the National Institute of Sports, Patiala and took samples from the campers in the backdrop of the doping scandal in athletics.
