Batra moves court against Gill

May 02, 2005 21:23 IST

The power struggle in the Indian Hockey Federation reached the Delhi high court with senior vice-president Narendra Batra filing a writ petition against president K P S Gill.

Batra, who has vowed to unseat Gill from the president's post, alleged in his petition that the former Punjab Police Director General committed financial irregularities and should not be allowed to contest the IHF's next elections.

The petition, which is also against secretary-general K Jothikumaran, accused the duo of running the IHF in an autocratic manner.

Batra alleged that the two are continuing in office for a third term against government guidelines, which say that no office-bearer can have more than two terms or maximum of eight years in office.
