6-match ban for Justin and Nurain

East Bengal on Tuesday suffered a blow as its striker Jobby Justin was suspended for six matches for an ugly spat with Aizawl FC defender Kareem Nurain in a previous match, ruling him out of its I-League title-deciding tie against Gokulam Kerala on Saturday.

The AIFF’s disciplinary committee also imposed a fine of ₹1 lakh on Justin, along with the six-match suspension.

Nurain was also handed the same punishment of six-match ban, along with a fine of ₹1 lakh.

Both were serving interim suspensions, before the AIFF Disciplinary Committee took the decision of the six-match ban and fine.
