World wrestling body asks all national federations to suspend dealing with India.

The United World Wrestling (UWW) has asked all the national federations under it to stop communication with the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) in the wake of visa denial of Pakistani shooters in the recent World Cup.

The tournament was initially scheduled to be hosted in Lebanon from July 9-14, but its inability to host the event led UWW Asia offering it to India, a confirmation of which was supposed to come by Friday

Neither WFI President Brij Bhusan Sharan nor Assistant Secretary Vinod Tomar could be reached for comments.

The denial of visas to Pakistani shooters in the Delhi World Cup last month has jeopardised India’s chances of hosting the Olympics or any global event with the IOC suspending all such discussions with the country and recommending that no big tournament be awarded to it.

India denied visas to Pakistani shooters for the World Cup in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack, which killed 40 CRPF personnel. As a result, the IOC revoked the 2 Olympic quotas on offer in the men’s 25m Rapid Fire Pistol competition of the event.

The hostilities between India and Pakistan that engulfed even sporting ties on the wake of the Pulwama terror attacks on 14th February might conclude with a serious casualty. India might receive a big blow if it loses the hosting rights of Junior Asian Championships which was offered to India by UWW-Asia
