New Delhi: The Indian Olympic Association on Thursday asked several national federations, including those of basketball, hockey and athletics, to cough up their respective share in the Rs 59,262 bill that the Olympic body had to pay for “the damages” caused by the country’s athletes and officials at this year’s Commonwealth Games Village in Australia.

“I strongly recommend that the total amount of Rs 73,988 debited to IOA by CWG OC should be recovered from the respective NSF’s (less refrigerator hiring charges) immediately and the NSFs should be asked to speak with concerned athletes and support staff that such things should not happen in future,” Batra wrote in an email communication to IOA secretary general Rajeev Mehta asking him to take up the matter with respective NSFs.
