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 -  The Pakistan Air Force Wednesday forced a Russia-made cargo plane belonging to a foreign military to land at the Karachi airport after it violated Pakistani airspace, a media report said.

Geo News, however, did not mention the name of the country to which the plane belonged.

The cargo plane took off from the Bagram air base in Afghanistan and was supposed to fly to the Al Maktoum international airport in the United Arab Emirates.

Sources said such kind of cargo planes are used to carry NATO supplies to Afghanistan.

The plane is being checked and the crew interrogated.
