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.

Two years in Prison for killing 20,000 Peoples, Mockery of Justice

Bhopal (IndiaVision News) - After Guilty of killing 20000 peoples, eight people convicted for the world's henious industrial disaster have been sentenced to just two years in prison and a fine of Rs 5000 each. Over 20,000 people were killed in the Bhopal Gas tragedy of December 2-3, 1984.

Keshub Mahindra, UCIL Chairman, and six others sentenced to a maximum imprisonment of two years in the Bhopal Gas disaster case.

The sentencing came hours after a Bhopal court convicted the eight accused, including former Union Carbide of India Chairman Keshub Mahindra, in the Bhopal gas tragedy case.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Mohan P Tiwari pronounced the verdict in a packed court room convicting 85-year-old Mahindra, and seven others in the case relating to leakage of deadly methyl isocyanate gas in Dec 1984.

They were held guilty under Sections 304-A (causing death by negligence), 304-II (culpable homicide not amounting to murder), 336, 337 and 338 (gross negligence) of the Indian Penal Code.

However, there was no word on Warren Anderson, the then Chairman of Union Carbide Corporation of the US, who was declared an absconder after he did not subject himself to trial in the case that began 23 years ago.

Others found guilty are Vijay Gokhle, the then Managing Director of UCIL, Kishore Kamdar, the then Vice President, J N Mukund, the then Works Manager, S P Choudhary, the then Production Manager, K V Shetty, the then Plant Superintendent and S I Quershi, the then Production Assistant.

The sentencing in the case is expected later as the arguments are on. Maximum sentence can be two years.
