The CBI on Thursday questioned Suresh Kalmadi, the former chief of the Commonwealth Games organising committee, in connection with alleged irregularities in over Rs 70 crore contracts given to a Mauritius-based company for the 2010 games.

During the questioning, Kalmadi denied all allegations, sources said.

The Mauritius-based firm, Event Knowledge System (EKS), was given three contracts worth over Rs 70 crore by the organising committee for consultancy on issues like venue development and management, games workforce planning and project management services.

The high-level committee headed by former CAG VK Shunglu allegedly found many irregularities in awarding of contracts. Kalmadi was questioned for about three hours.
