New Delhi, Jan 14 (Agencies): The Delhi High Court granted bail to TS Darbari, the former CWG Organising Committee official and key aid of Suresh Kalmadi, as CBI failed to file enough evidence regarding his alleged role in the Queen's Baton relay scam.

Justice Hima Kohli allowed the bail plea of Darbari saying the CBI has failed to complete its probe and file the chargesheet against him within the time-frame of 60 days.

During the hearing, Darbari's lawyer said his client is eligible to be released on bail as the CBI has failed to complete its probe within the prescribed time limit and his client cannot be kept behind bars indefinitely.

The court is slated to hear later during the day the bail plea of another former CWG OC official M Jayachandran, who too has been arrested for his alleged role in the same case.

Earlier, a Delhi court had rejected the duo's bail pleas, saying the corruption in awarding the contracts in the CWG has tainted the image of the country.

Darbari and Jayachandran were arrested by the CBI on November 15 and 21 last year respectively.
They are facing charges of causing losses to the exchequer in award of contract to the tune of Rs 1.55 crore with regard to Queen’s Baton Relay on October 29, 2009 in London before the mega event.

The case against them has been registered under different Sections of IPC and Prevention of Corruption Act.
