INDIA BOWS TO IOC DIKTAT TO PREVENT GAMES OUSTER

0

NEW DELHI: The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) on Sunday agreed to amend its constitution and bar tainted officials from holding office, as demanded by the world body, to ensure it remains part of the Games movement. A special IOA meeting in New Delhi decided to elect new office-bearers on February 9, while keeping President Abhay Singh Chautala and secretary-general Lalit Bhanot out of the election process. Chautala is facing criminal charges over a recruitment scam unrelated to sport, while Bhanot is out on bail after being jailed last year for corruption linked to the chaotic 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
