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.

Attacked by truck driver, Punjab Police officer dies

Patiala (Punjab) - A Punjab Police officer on traffic duty during a VIP visit who was allegedly assaulted by a truck driver Friday night here has died, police said Saturday.

The officer, Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Ravinder Pal Singh Mangat, had signalled the truck to stop at the campus being constructed for the Rajiv Gandhi National Law University here.

However, the truck driver did not stop.

Mangat chased down the truck and stopped it, but was allegedly assaulted by the driver.

The ASI, who was injured, was taken to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him dead, police officials said.

The police have arrested the truck driver and booked him for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

The ASI was on duty at the university campus Friday as the chief justice of the Punjab and Haryana high court was to visit.

Police said that the truck was asked to stop owing to the VIP visit.

The victim is the third police officer to be killed in Punjab in recent months.

An ASI died in mysterious circumstances when he went with a police raiding party to a village in Tarn Taran district earlier this month to take protesting farmers' leaders into preventive custody.

In December last year, an ASI lost his life after he was shot dead while trying to stop a ruling Akali Dal leader from harassing his daughter near Amritsar.
