New Delhi: The International Boxing Federation (AIBA) has decided to allow Indian boxers to participate in competitions approved by it under its flag, reversing the world body's earlier decision to bar them in the aftermath of the country's ban by the IOC.

In a letter to the Indian Amateur Boxing Federation, the AIBA said that its Executive Committee has decided to allow participation of Indian boxers in international events despite the continuation of suspension of the IABF.

The AIBA, however, made it clear that no official will be allowed to accompany the boxers in any international competition.
