LAUSANNE Switzerland Dec 4 (Reuters) - The International Olympic Committee (IOC) banned the Indian Olympic Association on Tuesday over elections that could result in a tainted official taking over as the only candidate for secretary-general, a source close to the IOC told Reuters.

The source said Kuwait, that was also under investigation over a sports law, had escaped a ban.
