0 37


JAMMU: The allegations of outside players in MDU Rohtak team proved to be true after the jury committee found the visiting side guilty of including ‘fake’ students for better prospects in the ongoing North Zone Inter University Handball Championship hosted by University of Jammu on the campus grounds, here on Tuesday.
The subsequent scratching of the team by the panel constituted to probe the allegations from the competition benefited the host men’s team. The JU men’s team, which had lost in the quarter finals to MDU Rohtak on Monday, awarded berth in the league round of top four teams.
Pertinent to mention here that JU team management had lodged a protest with the organising committee alleging outside players in MDU Rohtak team.
“The allegations proved to be true with the result the MDU Rohtak team has been scratched. Since the team had little to explain, the contingent left Jammu this morning. Taking serious note of the incident, we have decided to dispatch MDU Rohtak the copy of the report submitted by the Jury Committee,” informed Organising Secretary and Director, Sports and Physical Education, JU, Prof Dhian Singh Bhau.
Soon after the decision, JU replaced MDU Rohtak in the already drawn fixture and managed a close win against Punjabi University Patiala 24-22. Panjab University Chandigarh also won their league tie in the men’s section played against Kurukshetra University 40-31.
Now, the next round of league matches shall take place from 1:00 PM onwards on Wednesday.
Today’s matches were officiated by the technical panel comprising Dev Raj, Anoop Singh, Karamveer Singh, Kartar Dogra, Koushal Dixit, Vikas Sharma, Gourav Sharma, Karun Majotra, Iqbal Singh, Kapil Sagotra, Roshni Sharma, Bhanu Priya, Priya Charak, Prabhleen Kour, Ashish Dogra and Pooja Sharma.

The results: WOMEN: LPU Phagwara beat Punjab University Chandigarh 31–24; Punjabi University Patiala defeated Delhi University Sports Council 33-24.
MEN: Panjab University Chandigarh blanked Kurukshetra University 40–31; University of Jammu beat Punjabi University Patiala 24-22.
