Indian U-17 women's assistant coach sacked

Dr. S. Y. Quraishi, a member of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) that is currently overseeing the functioning of the All India Football Federation (AIFF), has announced that the India U17 women’s national team’s assistant coach has been sacked for alleged sexual misconduct. 

Quraishi made the announcement on his Twitter handle, announcing the same.

The incident first came to light when the AIFF released a statement on June 30, stating that a member of the team was called back after events of misconduct were reported from the camp in Norway, where the team are participating in the Open Nordic Tournament WU16.
