New Delhi, on Monday, Delhi High Court pronounces the verdict regarding on who gets to board the flight to Rio between Sushil Kumar and Narsingh Yadav.
Although it was an unfavourable verdict for Sushil but it may not be the end on the legal front as he can still challenge the ruling in the Supreme Court.
Olympics will be going to start from August 5 but the future look bleak for the unassuming grappler from Haryana injuries played a part in the entire sequence of events leading upto tomorrow.
The Delhi High Court, in its last hearing on Thursday, gave clear indications that it was likely to give a judgement in favour of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) in the tiff over selection trials in the men’s 74kg freestyle category. T
he Delhi High court had observed that it did not find “any statutory mandate” to hold trials before the Olympics. “Problem is that the sports code is nowhere prescribing that trial is mandatory. It has given flexibility and autonomy to the organisation to decide (mode of selection). I do not find the statutory mandate which you are trying to read into it,” Justice Manmohan had said during the final hearing.
