In a major blow to the CWG scam-accused Suresh Kalmadi, V K Verma and Lalit Bhanot, the Ethics Commission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has recommended that the tainted trio be suspended from all their functions within the IOA with immediate effect.

The Commission noted that the trio violated Point B.5 of the IOC Code of Ethics which states that “The Olympic parties shall use due care and diligence in fulfilling their mission. They must not act in a manner likely to tarnish the reputation of the Olympic Movement.”

The Commission also recommended the trio be banned from contesting the upcoming IOA elections.
