New Delhi: Suresh Kalmadi, former chairman of the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee who is in jail on charges of corruption, will soon undergo a brain scan after a court gave its permission Saturday.

The special Central Bureau of Investigation court gave the direction after it received a report from a medical officer of Tihar Jail advising the MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) of Kalmadi's brain.

On Thursday Kalmadi filed an application before the court stating he should be medically examined as he was not feeling well. The court accepted his plea and asked the medical officer to submit a report.

Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh directed the Tihar Jail superintendent to take Kalmadi to the Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan (LNJP) Hospital for tests.

"The jail and medical superintendent of LNJP Hospital are directed to ensure the MRI is done and the report is submitted by July 21," the court said.
