New Delhi: One year ban on Boxer Sarita Devi by International Boxing Association (AIBA) for refusing her bronze medal in Incheon Asian Games has caused concern across India in general and sportspersons in particular, said, Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs and Sports Shri Sarbananda Sonowal.

Government to seek review of AIBA decision to ban boxer Sarita Devi

Sarita Devi, one of the most talented sportspersons in India comes from a very humble background and has risen high in her sport due to hard work, perseverance and talent.

She is and will remain one of the prospective representatives of the country in future international sporting events.

Banning her for one year at this juncture will have a demoralising effect on her consistency and good performance in the arena. It may also affect the promotion and development of boxing in India.

Government of India is of considered view that the issue of Sarita Devi should be dealt with in a sympathetic manner by the concerned authorities.

The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, has been pursuing the matter since the beginning and will continue to pursue it further at all appropriate forums dealing with the subject for a review of the decision of banning Sarita Devi.”
