Will go through High Court order before taking decision on Jwala Gutta: BAI

Jwala, who had won the bronze medal in 2011 World Championship in London and the 2010 Commonwealth Games gold along with partner Ashwini Ponnappa, is unlikely to be able to participate in the Denmark Open as the BAI had withdrawn her entry from the event on Wednesday.

New Delhi: The Badminton Association of India (BAI) on Thursday said it will honour the Delhi High Court's verdict on Jwala but said any further decision on the ace doubles shuttler would be taken only after going through the copy Court's judgement.

Jwala, who has been recommended a life ban by the BAI disciplinary committee, got a reprieve today when the Delhi High Court accepted her plea and allowed her to participate in upcoming tournaments till the three-member committee takes a final decision on the issue of her alleged indiscipline.

"We honour the court's decision. We have already requested the BWF (Badminton World Federation) to consider Jwala's entry. It is up to them to decide now," BAI general secretary Vijai Sinha told PTI.
