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.

Mumbai -  A South Korean national Saturday succumbed to burns in an explosion on board a ship off the Mumbai coast while six others were injured, officials said.

"One of the crew members named Moon Hyun-seok, a South Korean national, has succumbed to his injuries," a Mumbai Port Trust official said.

The ship ‘Royal Diamond - 7’ is a chemical tanker which was to sail with a consignment of 2,000 tonnes of Toluene.

"The South Korean Consulate has been informed of the unfortunate incident today and the senior management of the Port has visited the chemical tanker ‘Royal Diamond - 7’ to have a first-hand assessment of the incident," the official said.

The MPT has now decided to shift the tanker to Outer-Anchorage of the port.

The cause of the explosion is yet to be ascertained.
