Led by tournament host Jeev Milkha Singh and Gaganjeet Bhullar, all golfers at the inaugural Shubhkamna Champions golf tournament showed their solidarity with the 23-year-old victim of the heinous Delhi gang rape by wearing black ribbons.

“Someone from a NGO fighting for and protesting against crime against women and who have led the protests at India Gate called me to get support for the rape victim. Since we were playing a tournament, we all decided that we could show our support by wearing black ribbons,” said Bhullar.

Jeev said: “I am hopeful she will recover soon. She is a big fighter in our eyes. This black ribbon is our way of showing her our support. All the players are wearing it. We support various causes on international tours. What has happened here is terrible and we hope no one has to suffer like this.” The final is on Sunday.
