Administrator threatens India’s IOC return


Clean Sports India, an anti-corruption pressure group that was established in 2010, said new rules on sports administration were long overdue.

“The sports minister’s good intention ... to bring about transparency and accountability is seen as a major threat to veteran administrators like Malhotra,” the movement’s convenor B.V.P Rao said.

“He [Malhotra] is an 81-year-old, with 40 years as president of the Archery Association of India, and still wants to control the federation and the sports at the cost of the younger generation,” Rao added.
