New Delhi: The Sports Ministry on Monday asked the newly formed Boxing India (BI) to work towards revocation of provisional suspension imposed by AIBA on L Sarita Devi and three ringside coaches by helping them in filing their replies to the world body.
Sarita has been provisionally suspended for refusing to accept her bronze medal owing to a controversial semifinal loss at Incheon Asian Games. The suspension has jeopardised her chances of participating in the World Championships from November 19 in Jeju Islands, Korea. (Also read: I am Sorry, Won't Do it Again, Sarita to AIBA)
