NEW DELHI - A Delhi court Thursday extended the CBI custody of former Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi’s aide Shekhar Deorukhkar by two more days. He was sent to five-day remand Feb 12.
Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Judge O.P. Saini allowed the CBI’s plea to quiz him for two more days. Deorukhkar was arrested Feb 11 from Pune.
The Games were held in New Delhi Oct 3-14, 2010, marred by allegations of financial irregularities and corruption.
The CBI had earlier arrested three senior CWG officials - T.S Darbari, Sanjay Mahendroo and M. Jayachandran. All the three were granted bail.
Binu Nanu, an official of a private firm who is in jail for his involvement in the row over grant of Rs.600 crore overlays contract for the CWG, was the fourth person to be picked up.
His bail plea is pending in the Delhi High Court.
Deorukhkar is the fifth person to be arrested in relation to the CWG scam.
