New Delhi: Sacked he might have been by the Sports Authority of India (SAI) but Dr PMS Chandran still maintains that the pregnancy test conducted on the World Championships-bound boxers was "unjustified".
"According to me the pregnancy tests were unwarranted and unjustified as the rules did not mandate such pregnancy tests," Chandran said in a statement. (Pregnancy Tests Were Not Done on Minor Boxers: SAI)
