New Delhi, Jan 6 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday carried out raids on Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi's aides and companies that were connected to the overlays in the sporting event.

Carrying out the raids at ten locations across Delhi and NCR, a 4th FIR in connection with irregularities in overlays was also lodged.

The CBI is also conducting raids at the residence of former CWG OC DG V K Verma who is a key aide of Kalmadi.

The case was registered under 420, 120B, PC Act. Verma and four other foreign companies have been named in the FIR.

Kalmadi was on Wednesday questioned by the CBI in connection with the overlays scam.

Sources said the questioning centered around the overlays contract, AM films deal and the purchase of the aerostat - one of the main attractions of the mega sporting event.

The CBI is armed with critical documents they found during the raids on him on December 24.

The CBI summons to Kalmadi follows the interrogation of his key aide Lalit Bhanot and political advisor Manoj Bhore.

The investigating agency reportedly grilled the duo to throw some light on details about Kalmadi"s role in bungling of funds, and in connection with the case involving UK-based A M Films.

The CBI had earlier conducted raids at Kalmadi's home and offices in Delhi, Mumbai and Pune, as part of its ongoing investigations into the multi-crore sporting extravaganza.

The raids were conducted in the wake of reports that some crucial documents related to Commonwealth Games deals have gone missing. (ANI)
