New Delhi: The government on Thursday  withdrew the recognition to Hockey India for violating its guidelines, barely a few hours after HI completed its controversial elections. The government took the step after finding Hockey India's reply to a show cause notice unsatisfactory.  

The HI was asked to explain why they should not be derecognised in the wake of their declaration before the Delhi High Court that they are a private body.  

Rejecting all the contentions of Hockey India, the Sports Ministry in a letter to both President and Secretary General of HI terminated the provisional recognition.  PTI
