Delhi High Court today declined to give an urgent hearing to a plea by Indian Amateur Boxing Federation (IABF) seeking stay of the upcoming elections to consitute the Boxing Federation of India (BFI).
The application seeking ex-parte stay of the September 25 election to the BFI executive committee was mentioned before a bench of justices Indira Bannerjee and V K Rao which refused to list it today saying there was no urgency and the matter would come up in due course.
The urgent application was moved by IABF President Abhishek Matoria contending that “irreparable harm and injury” will be caused if the polls were held on September 25 at Mumbai.
With no relief coming to Matoria, the elections would go as per schedule and pave the way for ending a four-year-old administrative logjam in Indian boxing body, that has virtually derailed the sport’s progress in the country.
