New Delhi, Feb 16 (IANS) A CBI special court here hearing a corruption case related to the 2010 Commonwealth Games Thursday granted bail to two officials of a company and rejected the bail plea of an official of another company.

All the three were arrested for alleged irregularities in awarding a Rs.141 crore contract for timing, scoring and result equipment for the Games held in New Delhi.

Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Judge Talwant Singh allowed the bail application of A.K. Madan and P.D. Arya, promoters of Gem International, on separate charges of being proclaimed offenders. They had earlier got bail in the corruption case.
