Mumbai: A national-level swimmer has
moved the Bombay High Court after her name did not figure in
the Indian squad for next month`s Commonwealth Games.

According to Mumbai-based Anoushka Merchant, the
Swimming Federation of India had said that it will select
eight probables, but later it named three girls without
informing the other aspirants.

A division bench of justices D K Deshmukh and N D
Deshpande asked additional solicitor general Darius Khambata
to get instructions from the federation, and adjourned the
hearing till tomorrow.

Last month, Mumbai-based wrestler Mayur Simhasane too
had moved the court challenging his non-selection but the
court did not give him any relief.
