Mohun Bagan demand compensation from East Bengal for Syed Rahim Nabi's injury

Anjan Mitra said they had to take the step as the players were scared to turn up after the break as it could have been worse. "The prime requirement in a match is the safety of the players. Moreover, the violence could have led to a mass hysteria and uglier incidents could have taken place. Who would have taken responsibility then?" Mitra asked.

Kolkata: Mohun Bagan on Monday demanded compensation from East Bengal for Syed Rahim Nabi's injury as the midfielder underwent surgery for two facial fractures he sustained after being hit by a stone during their violence-ridden I-League derby.

"We will demand compensation from the host club till the time the player was fit to turn out in Mohun Bagan jersey," Mohun Bagan general secretary Anjan Mitra told reporters at the club tent.

The club is also mulling legal opinion if they face any suspension from the AIFF.
