New Delhi, Nov 16 (IANS) A Delhi court Tuesday sent T.S. Darbari and Sanjay Mohindroo, two key aides of Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi, to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) custody till Nov 22.

“The court has directed that Darbari and Mohindroo will be in CBI’s custody till Nov 22,” a CBI official said.

The two officials, who were suspended after the Queen’s Baton Relay scam surfaced earlier this year, were arrested Monday.

The CBI has also registered two cases against Darbari and Mohindroo, London based private firms AM Car and Van Hire Ltd and AM Films UK Ltd, their director Ashish Patel and CWG director Raj Singh.
