New Delhi: After the CBI filed a chargesheet against sacked Commonwealth Games (CWG) Organising Committee (OC) chairman Suresh Kalmadi on the charges of corruption during the Games, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is gearing up to tighten its noose around him in money laundering case.

After the Patiala House court granted him permission last Friday, ED officials are set to interrogate Kalmadi next week.

The CBI had filed chargesheet against OC director general VK Verma, general-secretary VK Bhanot, joint secretary (sports) ASV Prasad and deputy director general (procurement) Surjit Lal, including Kalmadi and three companies.

They are charged with conspiracy of favouring Swiss Timing for TSR and causing a loss of Rs 96 crore to nation’s exchequer.

ED, in February, had registered a case of money laundering under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

However, after CBI’s chargesheet, ED can now question him in the money laundering case.

According to an ED official, the preparation of list of questions for Kalmadi has already been completed.
