New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday reserved its order on a plea alleging that Hockey India (HI) was threatening players to prevent them from taking part in the World Series Hockey (WSH) tournament.
A division bench of Acting Chief Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw reserved its order after conclusion of arguments by counsel appearing for the parties.
The tournament, a joint initiative of the Indian Hockey Federation (IHF) and Nimbus Sports, is to be held in the country between Dec 17 and Jan 22, 2012. The WSH is not sanctioned by the International Hockey Federation (FIH), which recognises the HI as the official custodian of the national sport in the country.
