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.

New Delhi -  India has taken up "quite strongly" with Maldives the rape of an Indian woman and has been assured of action by its government, an official said Tuesday.

A 24-year-old Indian teacher was raped on an atoll in Maldives on Sunday.

"The Indian mission in Male is in touch with the victim... (Maldives') Ministry of Gender is overseeing the case," external affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said Tuesday.

The young woman, a teacher in a private computer school, was "badly injured" and has been given blood transfusion, he said.

The Indian high commission has sent two officials to the Dhangethi atoll, where the incident took place. "We will provide whatever support we can... We have taken it up quite strongly with Maldives, and have been assured of action," he added.

According to Haveeru daily, a group of people had broken into the rented home of the woman and raped her late on Sunday.

"The woman had suffered psychological trauma and has been transferred to the Atoll hospital to be treated for physical injuries sustained during the ordeal," it said quoting an official.

Police are yet to make any arrest in the case.
