Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Islamabad - At least 12 students were injured when two rival groups clashed at a university in the Pakistani port city of Karachi Monday, the Geo News reported.

The two student-groups quarrelled with each other over pasting of a poster near the cafeteria of Karachi University. The argument later turned violent.

Classes were suspended after the clash, and two students arrested by Karachi Rangers.

According to The Nation daily, students associated with two political parties clashed at the Arts Faculty of the university, using clubs. They also pelted stones at each other.

Karachi Rangers personnel fired tear-gas shells to disperse the students.

Some students later gathered outside the Arts Faculty and staged a protest against the shelling and arrest of students.
