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.

Beijing -  Chinese police has reportedly arrested five people after a 17-year-old boy sold his kidney to buy an Apple iPhone and iPad.

The boy, identified by his surname Wang, is said to have received about 3,000 dollars for his kidney.

He was reportedly recruited for the illegal trade through an online chatroom.

The incident came into light after his mother noticed the new gadgets, and asked where he got the money.

Those detained include the surgeon who removed the kidney from the boy in April 2011, The BBC reports.

According to state-run Xinhua news agency, the group received around 35,000 dollars for the transplant.

The group behind the operation have been charged with causing intentional injury and illegal organ trading.
