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.

Fatehgarh Sahib - Punjab police have arrested a pharmacist who used to conduct authenticity tests of drugs for international drug smugglers from Ludhiana city late Sunday, police sources said.

The accused was identified as Sunil Katyal, a resident of Naseeb Avenue in Ludhiana. He was an associate of NRI smuggler Anoop Singh Kahlon, who was arrested with a huge quantity of heroin from Mohali March 7.

“Katyal, who works with a private pharmaceutical company, is a close associate of Kahlon. He had taken drugs many times to his owner’s laboratory to test their authenticity. He was getting a fixed commission for his job,” a police official here said.

Police said Katyal had been booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and his interrogation was being done.

Police expect to get clues about other drug smugglers operating in the state from Katyal.
