The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is raiding 18 places across the country in connection with alleged irregularities in the Commonwealth Games projects. The raids are being conducted at 17 places in Delhi, two in Mumbai and one in Kolkata.
The Central Bureau of Investigation, which has been probing the financial irregularities in the 2010 Commonwealth Games, has registered three fresh cases in connection with renovation of Shivaji and Talkatora stadiums for the Games and appointment of 35 consultants. The CBI suspects that the contracts for the two stadiums were allegedly awarded at an exorbitant rate by state/central authorities to undeserving contractors.
The agency suspects that finalising of the Games-related contracts were allegedly delayed to benefit a few firms/contractors.
A CBI source, requesting anonymity, said the agency suspects that the OC, headed by Kalmadi, "deliberately delayed the issuance of tenders for various Games-related works for months and then handed them over to a few select firms at inflated rates".
