Games disasters continue in Delhi

The dire build-up to the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi has deteriorated further, with the organising committee urged to fire two senior officials amid a brewing corruption scandal just two months before the opening ceremonies.

Commonwealth Games organising committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi had already ordered an emergency board meeting for this week when local media reported he'd been asked by India's sports ministry to remove his director general TS Darbari and deputy director general Sanjay Mohindroo.

Sports Secretary Sindhushree Khullar reportedly asked Kalmadi to take action after the names of the two high-ranking organising committee members figured in the investigations into "alleged irregularities."
