INDIA DECRIES KNOCKOUT BY GOVERNING BODY

0

NEW DELHI: India’s boxing federation reacted furiously on Tuesday after being effectively expelled by the sport’s world governing body, calling the decision “shocking” and “arbitrary.” In a fresh embarrassment for the country’s sports administrators, the International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) on Monday decided to exclude the Indian association from its ranks until the current leadership had been replaced with “honest” officials. The AIBA had suspended the Indian federation in December 2012 over allegations of manipulation in its elections, but the new sanction means there is no way back until there is a complete overhaul at the top.
