Unfazed by the over eight hours of questioning in connection with allegations of financial irregularities ahead of the Commonwealth Games, Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi walked out smiling from the CBI headquarters here Wednesday evening. Kalmadi walked into the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) headquarters Wednesday morning and came out only around 6.50 p.m. A smiling Kalmadi walked out and stepped into his car without making any comments or answering any questions from the waiting media persons. The CBI is probing irregularities in the award of contracts during the Queen’s Baton Relay ceremony in London in October 2009 as also wrongdoing in awarding a contract of Rs.107 crore for procuring timing equipment for the athletics event of the Games. Sources said the questioning centred around the overlays contract, A.M. films deal and the purchase of the aerostat - one of the main attractions of the mega sporting event.
