Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, June 29 (IANS) The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Wednesday questioned Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sudhanshu Mittal, who also runs a marquee business in Delhi, for alleged irregularities in procurements for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, an official said.

“Sudhanshu Mittal was questioned for alleged irregularities in the overlays case. He was co-operative during quizzing,” a CBI official said.

Mittal and his nephew Vinay Mittal are connected with Deepali Consortium, which was awarded a contract for the mega sporting event last year.

PICO International and Deepali Designs, where Mittal serves as director and his relatives are stakeholders, had bagged contracts worth about Rs.230 crore.

After Mittal became a director at Deepali Designs in February last year, the company won a massive contract to supply treadmills, chairs, umbrellas and other equipment, referred to as overlays.

The CBI had also raided his home last year.

Sudhanshu Mittal is a close associate of former BJP president Rajnath Singh and the late Pramod Mahajan.
