Commonwealth Games Organising Committee (OC) former chief and Congress MP Suresh Kalmadi today requested a Delhi court to grant him custody parole to attend the Monsoon session of Parliament beginning August 1.
“Accused Suresh Kalmadi has moved an application seeking permission from the court to attend the Parliament session. A notice be issued to the CBI for Monday,” Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh said.
66-year-old Kalmadi, who is a Lok Sabha member from Pune, sought the court’s permission to attend the eighth session of the 15th Lok Sabha commencing from August 1.
Earlier this month, Kalmadi had written to Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar seeking her permission to attend the monsoon session of Parliament. The Speaker, however, had said that he would be able to attend Parliament only if a competent court allowed him to do so.
