Suresh Kalmadi Latest News:Suresh Kalmadi suspended:IOA issues suspension order against Suresh Kalmadi, Lalit Bhanot

The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) has suspended and served a show cause notice to former Commonwealth Games (CWG) OC Chairman Suresh Kalmadi.

CNN-IBN accessed a replica of an interim suspension order passed by the Ethics Commission against Suresh Kalmadi, Former Secretary-General of CWG OC Lalit Bhanot and and former Director-General VK Verma.

The order is dated December 6, 2011 but is being served against them now as all were in jail. The order has been issued by the Ethics Commission of the Indian Olympic Association and has been signed by Former Supreme Court judge Justice UC Banerjee.

The suspension order is an element of a show cause notice which has been served against all. Sources told CNN-IBN that Kalmadi, Bhanot and Verma will challenge the members of the Ethics Commission.

Kalmadi had sent a letter to acting IOA president Vijay Kumar Malhotra earlier this month asking him to continue discharging his duty as the acting president of the IOA and that he would not represent the body for some time.

Kalmadi, who was granted bail by the Delhi High Court on January 19, has decided to step aside as the IOA president though he's not officially resigned from the post yet.

The former CWG OC chief had nominated the senior IOA vice president Malhotra as the acting president before being arrested for alleged corruption in the conduct of the Commonwealth Games in 2010.
