Why only OC officials targeted in CWG probe: KalmadiBy IANS

RANCHI - Indian Olympic Association (IOA) President Suresh Kalmadi Thursday questioned why the investigating agencies were calling only the organising committee (OC) officials in their probe into the Commonwealth Games (CWG) scam.
“I am surprised why officials of OC are being called by the investigating agencies. No decision was taken by any individual. There was financial committee, financial sub- committee and executive committee. Central government secretaries were also part of the decision-taking bodies,” Kalmadi told reporters here.
He said: “It was collective decision of the committees and no individual took any decision, then why officials of OC are only being targeted.”
Kalmadi arrived here Wednesday night for the ongoing National Games. He is likely to be part of the games’ closing ceremony Saturday.
His close aides Lalit Bhanot and V.K. Verma have been arrested in connection with the CWG scam.
