HC-SUSHIL 2 LAST

first_imgThe WFIs counsel also claimed that Sushil was avoidingThe WFIs counsel also claimed that Sushil was avoiding wrestling with Narsingh Yadav and he has not participated in World Championship but Yadav was there.Sushils counsel, however, said that his client has not participated in the World Championship as he was injured at that time.To this, the bench asked the WFI, “Has the wrestling federation taken a decision?”When the counsel appearing for the WFI said that they have already decided on the issue, the bench said, “You can call him (Sushil) and explain him the decision.”Responding to this, the WFI counsel said, “He (Sushil) knows everything but he is not ready to understand.”To this, the judge said, “This man (Sushil) has also got laurels for the country. The reasons which he is giving are quite worthy and I am not finding any malafide in what he is saying.”When Sushils counsel said that a direction for conducting selection trials in the first week of June be given, the court said, “The Indian cause will suffer.””The Indian cause has to be placed on a higher pedestal. Individuals may suffer but the country has to be placed higher,” the court said, adding, “You both are equally placed. How can I decide this. I will only interfere as a last resort. Let WFI decide this first as they are experts in this field.”After his name did not figure in Indias Rio preparatory camp, 32-year-old Sushil moved the Delhi High Court yesterday with a plea to direct the WFI to conduct a selection trial to decide who will represent India in the mens 74kg freestyle category at the Rio Games. The former world champion had taken the matter to the doorsteps of the Prime Ministers Office. He, though, is yet to get a response. He had also appealed to the Sports Ministry, Indian Olympic Association and the WFI.advertisementAccording to the rules, a quota belongs to the country and not to a particular wrestler and, thus, it was expected that a trial would be held in the contentious 74kg category to chose between Sushil and Narsingh Yadav.WFI has been giving hints that it is not too keen on holding the trial in 74kg division, fearing demands from other wrestlers in the remaining seven weight categories India has earned quotas for Rio Games.Narsingh has been staking his claim to represent India at the Olympics since last year when he secured a quota place at the World Championship in Las Vegas after winning a bronze in 74kg. Sushil, who missed the event due to a shoulder injury, has been demanding a trial. PTI ABA HMP PPS AG DVlast_img read more
