New Delhi:

Former hockey coach Mohammad Imran, who has given India five international players and over 50 national level players, is selling track suites for a livelihood in Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur district.

Imran, who used to play for the Fertilisation Corporation of India, now sells track suits and t-shirts.

Living became difficult for him after the then government shut down the Fertilisation Corporation of India.

The hockey star, who produced international players such as Rita Pandey, Rajni Choudhari, Sanjeev Ojha, Pratima Choudhari, Janardan Gupta and Sanvar Ali, gets a mere Rs. 1000 pension.
