The Delhi High Court has ruled that Suresh Kalmadi cannot attend the London Olympics in an official capacity.
The High Court added that Kalmadi would also not be allowed to leave the country till 27 July. The Indian IOC chief is currenly facing graft charges related to the Commonwealth Games.
However, an NDTV report says that Kalmadi has been permitted to attend a meeting in London in his individual capacity as a member of the International Association of Athletics Federation.
That means the court has only ruled him out of representing the country on the international stage.
Earlier Sports Minister Ajay Maken had also voiced concern over Kalmadi attending the Games, urging him to voluntarily skip the opening ceremony. Kalmadi reacted angrily to this and suggested that Maken should resign.
On 13 July, a special CBI court had allowed Kalmadi to go to London from 26 July to 13 August for the 2012 London Olympics. However this was challenged in a petition filed by lawyer Rahul Mehra who claimed that Kalmadi can be and should be prohibited from going to London as his visit was not a personal one.
