Suresh Kalmadi's aide and businessman sent to judicial custody in Tihar jail
New Delhi: A Delhi court on Saturday sent former Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi's aide Shekhar Deorukhkar and businessman Binu Nanu to judicial custody in Tihar Jail till 5th March in connection with irregularities in contracts for the 2010 Commonwealth Games (CWG).
Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) judge O.P. Saini sent Deorukhkar and Nanu to judicial custody till 5th March. The CBI did not seek any further police custody of the two.
Deorukhkar was arrested Feb 11 from Pune and was sent to CBI remand a day later for five days. His remand was then extended by two more days.
CBI contended before the court that Deorukhkar and V.K. Verma, DG of the Organising Committee at that time, have caused huge loss to the exchequer by awarding contracts to the companies M/s Mero Form Indian Pvt Ltd (France), M/s G.L. events Pvt Ltd, M/s PICO Deepali overlays consortium (New Delhi), M/s Nussli (Switzerland), and M/s ESAJV:D Art Indo consortium at exorbitant rates. Binu Nanu is the director of M/s Mero Form Indian Pvt Ltd (France) and M/s G.L. events Pvt Ltd.
The Games which were held in New Delhi Oct 3-14, 2010, have been marred by allegations of financial irregularities and corruption.
