The Delhi High Court Tuesday issued notice to Commonwealth Games Organising Committee on a petition by M. Jayachandran, who was suspended on corruption charges. He has sought reinstatement and Rs.5 crore damages for defamation.
Jayachandran approached the court alleging that his suspension by the OC Aug 5 along with other officials T.S. Darbari and Sanjay Mahindroo was illegal.
Justice Sunil Gaur asked the Organising Committee to preserve all the documents and evidence pertaining to the suspension. The next date of hearing is Jan 4, 2011.
The petition dubbed the Organising Committee decision as illegal and demanded that Jayachandran be reinstated as joint director-general.
He also filed a defamation suit against demanding Rs.5 crore damages.
Jayachandran was also the treasurer and officer on special duty for revenue and sponsorship in the Organising Committee.
He was accused of irregularities in the Queen’s Baton Relay in London. Jayachandran was accused of approving funds from a little known firm for the arrangements.
