HI likely to boycott CWG


New Delhi: A miffed Hockey India on Saturday asked the Indian Olympic Association to withdraw the men’s hockey team from the Glasgow Commonwealth Games after Harbir Singh Sandhu was denied accreditation by the organisers of the 2014 CWG. He was denied accreditation following the UK Home Office Background Check result. But the decision did not go down well with the HI whose secretary general shot off a letter to IOA president N Ramachandran and requested them to take up the matter with Glasgow Games organisers. — PTI
