K. Sacheti for his alleged involvement in the mega sporting event scam. In December last year, the CBI had interrogated Sacheti along with former OC secretary general Lalit Bhanot and Kalmadi’s advisor-cum-political secretary Manoj Bhore in connection with the Rs 107 crore Games scoring system contract.Sacheti’s residence was searched by the CBI after it registered an FIR in November 2010 naming director general V.
