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.

Israel envoy has confidence in Indian Govt., agencies completing Delhi blast probe satisfactorily

New Delhi - Israel's Ambassador to India Alon Ushpiz has said that he has complete confidence in the Indian Government and other relevant agencies completing investigations related to the February 13 terror strike in the heart of Delhi on a Israel diplomat's wife to Israel's satisfaction.

Responding to an article on the Delhi blast investigations appearing in the Israeli paper Haaretz, Ambassador Ushpiz said: "As we have said time after time in the last two weeks since our friend and colleague Tal Yehoshua Koren was attacked by terrorists in New Delhi, we have the full confidence and the highest appreciation for the Government of India and it's relevant agencies. We are grateful for their assistance and appreciative of our cooperation. We have no doubt that justice will be done. I am not aware of the details outlined in this article."

The Haaretz had earlier quoted a top Israeli security official as saying that Indian intelligence agencies have “considerable evidence” of Iran’s involvement in the February 13 attack on an Israeli diplomat’s wife, but are not releasing it in a bid to avoid a public confrontation with Teheran.

The senior Israeli official told The Haaretz that the Indians are “close to fully solving the case, but they are not saying so publicly”.

The paper further quoted him, as saying that the Indians have not “concealed the information in their possession” in quiet contacts with Israel and the United States.

The Indians have located the motorcycle used in the attack, have identified who purchased it, and know how and when the attackers arrived in India, the paper quoted the official, as saying.

“The Indians received a great deal of assistance in the investigation from the United States and Israel and did a lot of work themselves,” the daily quoted the official as saying.

The Israeli official reportedly noted that the Indian security services have decided to characterise the incident as a case that, until further notice, is under investigation.

This has lowered the pressure for the release of details, and the need to make serious decisions on how to proceed has been deferred, the source pointed out. Indian investigators were sent to Georgia and Thailand, where there were failed attacks, a short time after the New Delhi blast, to compare findings over the explosive charges used and evidence was found of Iranian involvement in the attempts, the daily said.
