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.

Kashmir cardiologist succumbs to gunshot wounds

Srinagar -  Well known Kashmiri cardiologist Sheikh Jalal, who was shot by gunmen July 18, died Saturday in New Delhi, officials said. He was 65.

Officials said the cardiologist, a former director of the prestigious super specialty Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences Soura (SKIMS), passed away Saturday morning at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi, where he was under treatment.

The body will be flown back to the Kashmir Valley for burial, sources said here.

Sheikh Jalal had been attacked July 18 by gunmen in Pampore, his ancestral town in south Kashmir.

Two armed guards detailed for the doctor's protection also died in the attack.

Jalal was shifted to Delhi for treatment last month. He had been on life support for nearly a month.

No guerrilla group claimed responsibility for the attack, which left people whom the doctor had served for over 35 years in shock.

Doctors and other staff at SKIMS will hold a condolence meeting in the hospital Saturday.
