CBI arrests Kalmadi for role in CWG scams: This is really shameful for all of us that one by one there are more cases about corruption. Recently from past few months I have heard so many cases of corruption that include the name of famous personalities of the country like Raja and many more. Today, in that list one more name is going to be added. This is none other than chairman of CWG committee Mr. Suresh Kalmadi. Although the rumor of his involvement in scams was heard so many times but finally CBI has got proof against him and today on April 25, 2011, finally he was caught. According to the news CBI has arrested Suresh Kalmadi for his role in AM Films and TSR scams. According to the news arrest order against him was carried out after some questioning asked by him from CBI. CBI also asked Kalmadi to appear in the court on Monday to clear some issues of his visit in London in connection with the Queen’s Baton Relay scam.
Kalmadi tried to be hiding: Before this, when he was earlier called by CBI, he expressed his inability to come because of his foreign visit. He said he would be back only after 19th April. But he did not approach CBI even after his arrival. He tried to be hiding and did not turn up. According to his resources he was not in Delhi but finally was caught by CBI. He has been accused of sanctioning payments to AM Films and AM Car at rates that were hugely inflated. The AM Car of London was engaged to provide services like taxis for the guests and OC members. The AM film was hired to provide display monitors during the event. According to Kalmadi, other bids are not that much competitive but later CBI has come up with the result that all other bids and bidders are fake and forged.
