Indian shuttler Jwala Gutta on Wednesday moved the Delhi High Court challenging the decision of Badminton Association of India (BAI) to recommend a life ban on her for alleged indiscipline in the IBL.

The BAI’s disciplinary committee recommended a life ban on Jwala for trying to stop some players of her franchise, Krrish Delhi Smashers, from playing a match against Banga Beats in the Indian Badminton League in August.

Justice V.K. Jain posted the petition for hearing on Thursday. Jwala has sought quashing of the October 7 order, where BAI ruled out considering Jwala for selection in any international events in the next one month, pending a decision by the three-member committee. The order has been issued in violation of settled principles of natural justice and fairness. — PTI
