“The matter reached us yesterday and a three-member committee has been constituted by the Chhattisgarh Association to find out the truth. It will file a report in three days,” TTFI Secretary Dhanraj Choudhary told PTI.

“I myself have seen the video and there is nothing indecent in it. The secretary of the local association resigned taking moral responsibility but no girl player or anyone has complained about anything. Since this matter reached the local association through media, they have decided to pursue the matter,” Choudhary added.
