Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officials from New Delhi also raided the house of Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi in south Mumbai, an official said.
"A team from New Delhi conducted the raid. CBI officers from Mumbai assisted them. The raid continued for three hours," the official said.
Kalmadi's Mumbai residence is located in the elite Pochkanwala Road in Worli.
Informed sources said the CBI also questioned Kalmadi's aides Vinod Surve and PK Shirvastav. CBI officials did not confirm this.
Official sources in Pune said Kalmadi's house off Karve road in that city was raided by a seven-member team at 7.30 a.m. His close aide Manoj Bhore's house in Pune was also searched.
The CBI is probing alleged irregularities in the Organising Committee's contract of Rs.107 crore with a firm to procure the Time Scoring Board.
Kalmadi, a senior Congress leader from Maharashtra, is a member of the Lok Sabha, elected for the third time in 2009 from Pune. He has also served in the Rajya Sabha four times.
