New Delhi: All India Football Federation (AIFF) president Praful Patel on Thursday said that strict action would be taken against those who are found guilty of negligence after a local football player died on the pitch during a game due to lack of medical attention in Bangalore.
"It's unfortunate that something like this has happened. We will definitely look into it and take action," said Patel.
"We don't know the cause as yet as to what exactly happened. Basically, all major matches and all the tournaments do have medical facilities available on stand-by like in any other game. In any tournament, there are some standard procedures that are there. If for some reasons, something has gone wrong we will take action," Patel told NDTV.
