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 - Dr Shakil Afridi, a Pakistani doctor who had helped the CIA in tracking down former Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, has been sacked by the health department.

In a notification issued in this regard, the health department said that Afridi’s services were terminated under the Efficiency & Disciplinary (E&D) Rules for being involved in anti-state activities, the Express Tribune reports. 

Earlier, 15 lady health workers who were part of the alleged fake vaccination campaign, were  were also sacked from their jobs.

It was reported earlier this month that Dr Afridi was dismissed from his post, along with four LHVs.

Earlier, Dr. Shakeel's wife, Imrana Ghafoor was also removed from her post. She was the principal of the Government Girls Degree College in Darra Adam Khel.

After the Abbottabad operation, the surgeon was arrested along with the four LVCs at the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in Torkham while trying to escape from the country.

Earlier this month, his house was sealed in Peshawar due to law and order concerns.

Non-payment of utility bills had also reportedly forced the Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited (SNGPL), Peshawar Electricity Supply Company (PESCO), and Peshawar Development Authority (PDA) to cut the connections at Afridi's residence. Besides, telephone lines have also been cut over the issue.
