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.

Patna - The husband of the principal of the Saran school in Bihar where 23 children died after eating contaminated food in July surrendered Monday before a Bihar court. He was sent to 14 days judicial custody, police said.

Arjun Rai, who was accused of buying the pesticide that got mixed with the food, was on the run after the July 16 tragedy. He surrendered Monday in the court of the chief judicial magistrate in Saran district, police said.

"Rai surrendered after the court issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against him and dismissed his anticipatory bail plea last week," a district police official said.

His wife, Meena Devi, was the principal of the government primary school at Gandaman village in Saran district when the children died. She was arrested a week after the deaths.

A first information report was registered against her on charges of murder and criminal conspiracy, police said.

A forensic lab report confirmed that traces of toxic insecticide were found in the cooking oil used for making food at the school, police said.
