Archery Association of India (AAI) President B.V.P. Rao on Wednesday resigned after the Supreme Court’s ruling to set aside the constitution of the National body of the sport as amended by Delhi High Court-appointed administrator S.Y. Quraishi.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday declared the amendments introduced by former chief election commissioner S.Y. Quraishi in the Constitution of the Archery Association of India (AAI) as “null and void”, while holding the December 22, 2018 polls conducted to the body as “non est in law”.

A Bench of Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and Ajay Rastogi said Mr. Quraishi, as the Delhi High Court-appointed administrator, acted outside his given mandate. The court ordered fresh elections to the AAI.
