Angry Jwala Gutta may drag BAI to court over IBL row
India's top doubles shuttler Jwala Gutta may go to the court against Badminton Association of India (BAI) for threatening to ban her for life over a row during the Indian Badminton League (IBL).
Jwala’s coach Syed Mohammad Arif has advised her to file a defamation suit against BAI for going to press without issuing her a ban notice.
The shuttler has not yet reacted to recommendation of BAI's disciplinary committee for a life ban on her for trying to stop players of her franchise Krrish Delhi Samshers from playing a match against Bangla Beats.
She was agitated after Bangla Beats were allowed to replace their injured Hong Kong player Hu Yun with Jan O Jorgensen of Denmark. She is maintaining silence at the advise of Arif.
“I asked her not to react till the federation issues her a notice. She can then move to court. I, in fact, advised her to file a defamation case,” Arif, the former chief national coach, said.
