SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir State Sports Council (jkssc) on Friday distanced itself from Kashmiri athlete Tanveer Hussain and his participation in a sporting event in the US where he has been arrested on charges of sexual abuse of an under-age girl.
Hussain was “neither an employee of the State Sports Council nor has the sports body been involved in the athlete’s participation in the Snowshoe event” held in the US village Saranac Lake last weekend, the sports body’s Secretary Waheed Para told PTI here. “His (Hussain’s) case for sponsorship is pending consideration. We have not taken any decision yet,” he added. “The matter is in the court (in the US). Let the law take its course. We need to wait before coming to any conclusion,” Para said.
