Tihar jail stay of Kalmadi, four others extended

New Delhi, May 18 (PTI): The judicial custody of sacked CWG Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi, arrested for alleged irregularities in awarding a contract to a Swiss firm, was extended today by a Delhi court.

While remanding the suspended Congress MP to judicial custody till June 1, Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh also extended for the same period the jail custody of two other top officials of the Games organising committee -- OC Joint Director General (Sport) A S V Prasad and Deputy Director General (Procurement) Surjit Lal.

The trio had been arrested on April 25 for awarding the lucrative contract to the Swiss firm to install a Timing-Scoring-Result (TSR) system for the 2010 Commonwealth Games at an exorbitant cost, causing a loss of over Rs 90 crore to the exchequer.
