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.

Jammu - Soldiers deployed on the Line of Control (LoC), which divides Jammu and Kashmir between India and Pakistan, Monday caught a Pakistani trying to sneak into India, an army spokesperson said.

Troops stationed in Poonch district, about 250 km from here, noticed suspicious movement of a person who was trying to infiltrate from the Poonch river bed, a spokesperson said.

“The troops were alerted. The individual later surrendered to the army,” he added.

The man was identified as Mohammad Sherif. An identity card, issued by "Hukumat-e-Pakistan", was recovered from his possesssion.

“This infiltration attempt has brought to light the intention of Pakistan to infiltrate terrorists and other supporters into Indian side for nefarious reasons. With the onset of summer, infiltration attempts have increased and this shall be a challenge to the army,” the official said.
