NEW DELHI: Decks were today cleared for participation of Pakistani grapplers at the Asian Junior Championship after Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) agreed to give an undertaking that the movement of the contingent from the neighbouring nation will be restricted to the competition venue.
The WFI had got the clearance for the championships only yesterday but the Home Ministry had put on hold participation of Pakistan, Iraq and Afghanistan in the continental championship, to be held at the KD Jadhav Stadium in New Delhi from July 17-22.
Pakistani wrestlers could not compete in 2015 Asian Cadet Championship as the MHA had refused to give them the clearance.
