The Delhi High Court on Wednesday restrained Sjoerd Marijne, former coach of Indian Women’s hockey team, from making any statements or giving interviews, or publishing any material from his upcoming book on men’s hockey team captain Manpreet Singh as they are ‘prima facie defamatory.’


“In my prima facie view, the statements made are on the face of it defamatory and injurious to the reputation and goodwill of plaintiff [Manpreet Singh],” Single-judge Justice Amit Bansal remarked.
