Posted By: Staff

New Delhi, May 21 (ANI): Deposed president of Indian Hockey Federation (IHF), K.P.S. Gill today vowed to fight back after the Delhi High Court quashed the Indian Olympic Association (IOC) order disbanding the IHF in 2008.

The judgment is in the interest of Indian hockey and that the IHF will soon be back in action, Gill said.

"We stand vindicated by the order. We are already having the nationals and soon we will call the AGM of the IHF and take necessary steps to revive the game in the country," Gill said.

The Indian Olympic Association dissolved IHF over allegation of mismanagement of funds involving the then IHF secretary K Jyothikumaran.

Hockey India was formed after the merger of men and women associations and an ad-hoc committee was formed to run the hockey affairs. (ANI)
