April 22, 2011 17:05 IST
The Enforcement Directorate has asked sacked Commonwealth Games Organising Committee Chairman Suresh Kalmadi to give details about his bank accounts, investments and other property related information in connection with its probe into the multicrore CWG scam.

According to sources, the ED has sent a communication to Kalmadi to furnish all details of bank accounts, movable and immovable properties, instances of foreign travel before the Games held last October, and transactions of foreign exchange in the last few years.

He has been asked to provide the information before the end of this month and subsequent action, which may include fresh summons for questioning, the sources said.

The ED is probing the flow of funds and forex exchange during the Queens Baton Relay that was held in London before the Games and has also registered a case in overlays-related works of the Games under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

The ED has been tracking the flow of funds with the help of Reserve Bank of India for sometime now for a number of events related to the games, including the QBR.

Kalmadi, being the head of the OC during that time has been asked to furnish the details under the provisions of the Foreign Exchange Management Act, sources said.

The agency has also questioned a number of OC officials and owners of the various consortia who executed works related to the CWG that were held in New Delhi from October 3-14.
