IOC intervenes to resolve conflict between Pakistani, Indian hockey federations

ISLAMABAD : The International Olympic Committee(IOC) has finally intervened to resolve, in fiftten days,the conflict between Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) and Hockey India.

It may be mentioned here that Hockey India (HI) recently in a statement had announced not to play any bilateral series against Pakistan unless the latter’s federation submits an unconditional apology in writing over Champions Trophy 2014 incident.

Talking to the news agency, an official of Pakistan Hockey close to the developments said as India’s Dr Narinder Batra is the International
Hockey Federation’s (FIH) President therefore the international body can be biased against PHF.

“Therefore the IOC has stepped in the matter and has ensured to sort it out in 15 days,” he said.

When contacted PHF Secretary declined to comment on the issue.
