Delhi High Court pronounce red signal to Sushil Kumar, Narsingh Yadav in Rio Olympics

Monday, The Delhi High Court showed red signal to Sushil Kumar, Delhi HC has discharged wrestler Sushil Kumar's plea for a trial against Narsingh Yadav to settle on a tie up in the 74kg category at the Rio Olympic berth.  

Earlier, seeking a trial to participate in the 74 kg weight category at the Rio Games in August, Sushil had appealed to the court.

"Though Sushil Kumar is a player with great record, the decision of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) cannot be held perverse,” Justice Manmohan Singh said while dismissing Sushil’s plea.

The court noted "WFI conducted a transparent process of selection. Delhi HC will not interfere in the jurisdiction of the wrestling federation unless arbitrary or unreasonable behaviour is shown. Arguments that the trial was held months ago and hence not tenable, are unsound and not accepted”.
