HC bars former coach from commenting against Manpreet Singh


The Delhi High Court on Wednesday restrained former Indian Hockey Team coach Sjoerd Marjine from giving any interviews or issuance of any statements in connection with an allegation he had levelled against Indian field hockey team captain Manpreet Singh.
The court also restrained Coach and Publisher from publishing an excerpt of his upcoming book titled “Will Power” where he has made allegations against Manpreet Singh. The coach has recently accused Manpreet of asking young players to underperform during the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Hockey player Manpreet Singh alleges that an excerpt of the book was leaked to a prominent daily newspaper. The HC also allowed the lawyers for Manpreet Singh to write to the media house to take down the article already published.
While hearing Manpreet Singh’s lawsuit, Justice Amit Bansal directed coach Sjoerd Marjine not to publish excerpts from his upcoming book in which he makes allegations against Singh.
