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.

Shimla -  Eight women were killed and 26 other people were injured when an over-crowded multi-utility vehicle carrying a marriage party skidded off the road and rolled down a 40 feet deep gorge in Himachal Pradesh Tuesday, police said.

The ill-fated vehicle met with the accident at around 12.30 p.m. at Khalota village near Namhol, some 35 km from the district headquarter town of Bilaspur.

The victims, most of them close relatives belonged to Ghiana village near Brahampukhar. They were going to attend a marriage function.

"Seven women died on the spot. Most of the injured have been referred to the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh," Superintendent of Police Santosh Patyal told IANS.

Eyewitnesses said the vehicle was overcrowded and the driver probably lost control while negotiating a turn.

Such overloaded vehicles are a common sight in the state, especially during religious and social occasions.
