Hockey India secretary general Narinder Batra, while taking full responsibility for the London Olympics debacle, has ordered an internal inquiry into the humiliating performance.

The reports of coach Michael Nobbs, the team manager and physiotherapist would be submitted to HI within 10 days and HI’s response would be known within a month, Batra told PTI from London. “Being the head of the family, I take moral responsibility for the debacle. I would like to apologise to the nation on behalf of the entire team,” Batra said.
