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.

Nigerian arrested with Rs.2.5 crore of cocaine

New Delhi -  A Nigerian involved in drug trafficking was arrested here and 250 grams of cocaine worth Rs.2.5 crore in the international court seized from him, police said Thursday.

Humphrey O. Agbaru was arrested Wednesday from west Delhi’s Vikaspuri area on a tip off.

“He was a member of an international drug trafficking syndicate operating from Mumbai and Delhi. The drugs were supplied to high-profile clients and rave parties,” said a police official.

According to police, Agbaru first visited India in 1998 on a tourist visa. He later returned on a student visa that year and took admission in DAV College affiliated to the Lucknow University in  Lucknow.

However, he was arrested when his visa expired and he returned home after coming out from jail in 2002.

He again returned to India later that year on a tourist visa and stayed in Mumbai from where he started exporting garments to Nigeria.

In 2006, he married an Indian woman from Maharashtra and came to Delhi. While he became an English tutor, his wife worked as maid. In 2009 he got a job in a private school in south Delhi.

Meanwhile, he came in contact with a fellow Nigerian when he was in Mumbai who was into drug trafficking. On his instructions, Agbaru started supplying cocaine in the capital.

As his original passport was lost and his visa had expired, he arranged a fake Botswanan passport with a fake Indian visa.
