Barely months after India came up with its best-ever performance in the Olympic Games in London, the country was slapped with a suspension notice by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Tuesday. This development, a fallout of the internal wrangling for power in the Indian Olympic Association(IOA), has put a question mark over the future of Olympic sports in India. India could be barred from attending the Olympics.
The decision was taken at IOC's executive board meeting which is being held in Lausanne, Switzerland, international news agencies reported. At a press conference, the IOC cited "government interference" and said the IOA's decision to hold its elections according to the government's Sports Code and not the Olympic charter was the trigger.
