Indian women’s hockey team suffered third successive defeat at the hands of Japan as the hosts took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the four-match Test series at Gifu Green Stadium, Kakamigahara on Monday.
Hockey India was left with egg on their face when the women team snubbed the games’ apex body’s offer, demanding incentive equal to that the men’s team gets. In a prompt reaction to downplay the protest launched by India’s women hockey team over non-payment of dues, Hockey India had sanctioned a sum of Rs 50,000 to each member of the team with an immediate effect.
The National Commission for Women
today shot a letter to Hockey India asking the interim body to
look into the grievances of the national women hockey players,
who are agitating against the delay in payment of their dues.
