Kalmadi, who was sent to Tihar jail under judicial custody on May 4 along with two others, moved the bail application in a CBI court and the judge listed the matter for hearing on May 9.

Earlier, Special Judge Dharmesh Sharma had sent Kalmadi, OC Joint Director General (Sport) A S V Prasad and OC Deputy Director General (Procurement) Surjit Lal to judicial custody till May 18 after CBI said some important witnesses are yet to be examined.
