Jamshedpur: A woman boxer from Manipur had
to be taken to a local hospital following depression on being
accused by a pugilist from Bengal for stealing the bronze
medal she won in the National Games here.

Reliable sources in the 34th National Games Coordination
Committee said that Dolly Singh lost her bronze medal she won
in 54kg from the residential wing of a sports complex used for
the Games here.

Though she did not lodge any official complaint, Dolly
had accused a Manipuri boxer for stealing the bronze.

Sources said the Manipuri boxer got into depression
following the accusation and she had to be rushed to the Tata
Main Hospital immediately, where she was kept for some time
before doctors discharged her.

Both the boxers, however, left Jamshedpur for home this
morning.
