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.

Plea against Amar Singh dismissed

New Delhi - A Delhi court Thursday dismissed a plea for registering an abduction case against Rajya Sabha member and former leader of Samajwadi Party Amar Singh and his two aides.

Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Neena Krishna Bansal noted that no prima facie case is made out against Amar Singh and said: “The petition is dismissed.”

The plea was filed by Hashmat Ali, a prosecution witness in the cash-for-votes episode in parliament ahead of a vote of confidence in 2008. Ali had challenged a magistrate's order on his petition.

Ali in his petition sought the registration of a case against Amar Singh and his aides Tarun and Ramesh for the offences of kidnapping, illegal confinement and other penal provisions along with the Arms Act.

His petition was dismissed by Metropolitan Magistrate Sudesh Kumar in November last year.

He requested the additional sessions court to quash the magistrate's order and register a case against Amar Singh and others.

He told the additional sessions court that the magistrate ignored the material available on record and proceeded on the basis of an inquiry conducted by police.

"Amar Singh slapped me and threatened to kill my family in case I did not change my statement given before police in the cash-for-vote scam...Amar Singh illegally confined me in his house for nearly four hours," said Ali's application.

Ali said that on Sep 25, 2008, when he was to record his testimony before a parliamentary inquiry committee, constituted to probe the scam, he was abducted by co-accused Tarun and Ramesh and was taken to Amar Singh's Lodhi Estate bungalow here.
