Suresh Kalmadi wants tout cop punished

New Delhi: Indian Olympic Association president Suresh Kalmadi on Saturday demanded action against policeman caught on camera selling Hockey World Cup tickets in the black.

"The incident outside the stadium where the police helped some people to sell tickets in black is regrettable. I have asked police to let us know what action they have taken because this cannot happen during the Commonwealth Games," Kalmadi told CNN-IBN.

"We have taken this up with them (police)," Kalmadi, who is also the chairman of the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee, said.

Network 18 on Friday exposed a security lapse at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium, the Hockey World Cup venue in the national capital, and showed visuals of a policeman selling tickets in the black.

Rohtash, a policeman, posted outside the stadium was allegedly helping touts and sold Rs 500 tickets for Rs 1,000 and Rs 100 tickets for Rs 500.
