New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation is likely to grill Jarnail Singh, CEO of the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee, in connection with the alleged corruption of giving Rs 107 crore contract to Swiss Timing for Timing, Scoring and Results (TSR) system during the event.

The agency officials may question Singh about the contract given to Swiss Timing allegedly at inflated costs.

"We will question Jarnail Singh soon. He will be called," said an official who refused to be named.

An indication in this regard was also given by the sacked chairman of OC Suresh Kalmadi who after being questioned by the CBI on Tuesday said Singh being the CEO of the body should also be questioned.

Singh, however, told a news channel that he joined the Organising Committee on November 23, 2009, 11 months before the start of Games, and most of the tenders and proposal requests were floated much before that.

"It is not fair for him to blame me, and these people (Kalmadi and other officials) are there since 2006-07, 08-09 and these tenders should have been called much earlier, evaluated much earlier and it was because of this that the games delivery was delayed," he said.

He said when tendering is delayed, contractors do not respond properly which affects negotiations with them.

Former Games OC Secretary General Lalit Bhanot and Director General V K Verma were, on February 23, arrested by the CBI in connection with alleged irregularities in the Rs 107- crore deal, under relevant sections of IPC related to criminal conspiracy, cheating and relevant provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act.
