New Delhi, Jan 04 (Agencies): Embattled Commonwealth Games OC chief Suresh Kalmadi will appear before CBI on Wednesday for questioning in connection with its probe into alleged financial irregularities in the conduct of the sports event, a fortnight after raids at his office and residences.

Official sources said today Kalmadi has been asked to come to the CBI office for questioning and he has informed the investigating agency he would make his appearance on Wednesday.

The chief of the Games' Organising Committee is likely to be quizzed on a number of issues regarding the Games including alleged bungling in Queen's Baton Relay.

CBI officials had on Monday visited the Games OC office here and questioned some officials. Besides they had seized certain documents related to QBR and other contracts with various firms.

The sources said Kalmadi will also be asked questioned about certain contracts given to foreign firms for carrying out overlays work for the games in October last.

The CBI had late last month contacted Kalmadi over phone asking him to appear before it for questioning but the OC chief had said he will be available only after January three.

Kalmadi had earlier in the day said he has not yet heard from the CBI about possible date of his questioning.
