United World Wrestling (UWW) has recommended national federations around the world to suspend their dealings with Wrestling Federation of India (WFI). The world wrestling body has taken this decision after International Olympic Committee (IOC) stopped discussions over hosting global events in India.

Ever since the Pakistani shooters were denied visas for their participation in the ISSF Shooting World Cup in Delhi in the wake of the ghastly terror attack on CRPF Jawans in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir, things are taking an ugly turn for Indian sports. After the IOC suspended all its discussions with India regarding hosting of global events in the country, now UWW has asked other national bodies under it to stop all their dealings with WFI.

"UWW recommends to all the affiliated and associated national wrestling federations to suspended their discussions or relations with the Indian wrestling federation," the world body wrote in its letter to national federations, a WFI source told PTI.

WFI president Brij Bhusan Sharan and assistant secretary Vinod Tomar could not be reached for their reactions on this issue.

As the Pakistani shooters were not allowed to take part in the Shooting World Cup, the IOC had also revoked two Olympic quotas in men’s 25m Rapid Fire Pistol event.
