CBI arrests Kalmadi's close aide in Pune

Pune, Feb 11 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday arrested former Organizing Committee (OC) chairman Suresh Kalmadi's close aide Deorukhkar Shekhar in connection with the multi-crore Commonwealth Games (CWG) scam.

Shekhar, who was the Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to Kalmadi, was picked up by the premier investigating agency for irregularities in overlays contracts in the 2010-sporting extravaganza.

This is the fourth arrest in this case after the CBI had earlier arrested top CWG OC officials T S Darbari, M Jayachandran and Sanjay Mahendroo.

The Delhi High Court granted bail to the three CWG OC officials in January after the Central CBI failed to file any chargesheet against them. (ANI)
