The CBI has filed a fresh case against Suresh Kalmadi for allegedly awarding a dubious contract to Switzerland-based Events Knowledge Services, for consultancy in recruitment of manpower for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
The firm was the technical consultant for the Commonwealth Games that were held in October 2010. The CBI has named Mr Kalmadi and two others in the Rs 60-crore scam.
Mr Kalmadi already faces charges of allegedly sanctioning an inflated contract worth Rs 141 crore for timing equipment and scoreboards to a Swiss firm, 90 crores more than what should have been paid, according to investigators.
Mr Kalmadi was granted bail by the Delhi High Court on Januray 19. He had been arrested in April last year for alleged corruption - as chairman of the Organising Committee for the Commonwealth Games.
The charges against Mr Kalmadi include conspiracy, forgery, misconduct and provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act. He has been suspended by his party, the Congress, but continues as a member of the Lok Sabha representing Pune.
