New Delhi :

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday said the government should not associate itself with the election in Hockey India (HI) due on Wednesday as it is a private body and held that Indian Hockey Federation (IHF) is the only recognised body for the sport in the country.

Directing the government and the HI to issue a clarification by this evening to all the state sport units that it is a private body, Justice S Murlidhar said that Wednesday's election will be allowed only when the confusion regarding its status is cleared.

"The election of July 28 would go on only when the clarification is made by the government and the HI," the court said, adding, "If they don't issue a clarification, the election will not go on."

The court also asked the government to withdraw its observer appointed to monitor the HI election.
