Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatars 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 -  Pakistan’s interior ministry has formally requested Interpol for issuing “Red Warrants” against former President Pervez Musharraf for his arrest and extradition to Pakistan.

The Dawn quoted interior ministry sources, as saying that the request had been sent to Interpol through its representative in Pakistan. 

The FIA’s senior public prosecutor, Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali, said on Saturday that earlier a letter had been sent to the director of Interpol (Pakistan) by the investigation officer in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case.

It said Musharraf was an accused in the case. The officer also handed over to the Interpol director the investigation reports, copies of statements by then director-general of ISI’s counter-intelligence wing Javed Iqbal Cheema and the former director general of Intelligence Bureau, Ejaz Shah, US-based journalist Marc Siegel’s email to Benazir Bhutto and copies of the orders issued by the anti-terrorism court.

The letter sent through email to the Interpol Pakistan on Feb 2 said: “Secretary General of Interpol Secretariat Lyon (France) is requested to issue ‘red warrants’ for Pervez Musharraf, former president of Pakistan, and arrest him through Interpol. A copy of red notice may please be furnished to this ministry.”

It also mentioned about the computerised national identity card (CNIC) number of the former president.
