Mumbai: India all-rounder Hardik Pandya and batsman KL Rahul will pay a fine of 20 lakh each to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for their unsavory, sexist and disrespectful comments on a television chat show. The decision was taken by the BCCI Ombudsman D.K. Jain.

The (Retd) Justice in his order, made public on Saturday, took into account the unconditional apology given by the players for their comments which were condemned widely. The two faced five-match ban too by the Committee of Administrators.

“The remarks made by the player, even by his own admissions, did offend the sensitivities, which ought to have been avoided,” Jain said. The BCCI said the players had shown regret and apologized for the comments but that they had to “make amends”.

“A player of international standing needs to bear in mind that he is shouldering a responsibility towards society all the time.”

New Delhi: The officer held responsible for the accidental shooting down of a military helicopter at the height of India-Pakistan tension in February will be charged by the Indian Air Force (IAF) for culpable homicide not amounting to murder along with three others, according to reports.

The IAF is yet to officially acknowledge reasons for the Mi-17 helicopter’s crash on February 27, the day Pakistan Air Force (PAF) fighter jets attempted to cross the Line of Control (LoC). But reports suggest that it was shot down in a friendly fire by IAF’s own air defence missile.

The Court of Inquiry into the incident killing all six onboard is yet to be completed.

The IAF maintains that the investigation was still going on but multiple reports indicate that there was a lapse in following the Standard Operating Procedures.
