Mumbai: In what appears to be a case of misunderstanding, India's boxing coaches at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games have been barred from occupying ringside seats during bouts due to the country's termination from the International Boxing Association (AIBA).

A communication to this effect from the competition organisers was received by the Indian Olympic Association on Tuesday, a top source who wished to remain incognito told PTI on Wednesday.

"The competition organisers seem to have misunderstood the situation (vis-a-vis the termination of Indian Boxing Federation by world boxing body AIBA in March and its replacement and provisional recognition of a new entity Boxing India in May) and have barred the coaches from seconding the boxers during bouts," the source said.
