Charges may be framed against Kalmadi today

A special court is likely to frame charges on Monday against sacked CWG organising committee Chairman Suresh Kalmadi, former OC Secretary General Lalit Bhanot and others in a Commonwealth Games-related case for  forgery, cheating and conspiracy.

Special CBI Judge Ravinder Kaur had, on 10 January, posted the framing of charges in the case for Monday. The court had earlier passed the order on framing of charges under various provisions of the IPC and the Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act.  Earlier, the court had said ‘prima facie’ charges of cheating, forgery, criminal conspiracy and for offences under the provisions of the PC Act are made out against eight accused persons and three companies. The court had also said substantial charges of misusing official positions have been made out against six former OC officials, who were public servants.

‘Charges under section 120B (criminal conspiracy), 201 (destruction of evidence), 420 (cheating), 467, 468, 471 (relating to forgery), 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC and section 13(1)(d) read with section 13(2) (criminal misconduct by public servants) of the PC Act is ordered to be framed against all accused,’ the court had said.
