New Delhi: The Gauhati High Court on Sunday stayed the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) elections, scheduled for July 11, on the plea of the Assam Wrestling Association, PTI reported.

According to PTI, Assam Wrestling Association, in its petition filed against the WFI, IOA ad-hoc body, and the Sports Ministry, said that though it was entitled to be an affiliated member of the WFI, it was granted one “despite recommendation made by then WFI Executive Committee at WFI’s General Council in Gonda, on November 15, 2014.”
