Randhir fears IOA has moved closer to suspension

International Olympic Committee member Randhir Singh fears the Indian Olympic Association may be suspended by the world body for holding elections that contravened IOC standards.
Randhir told The Associated Press on Saturday that "the IOA has gone directly against the Olympic Charter" by holding elections that adhered to a national government sports code rather than the IOA's own constitution.
Though the polls are scheduled for Wednesday, the IOA on Friday announced the appointment of some officials to posts which were not contested.
Among them was tainted official Lalit Bhanot, who is facing graft charges relating to the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
