New Delhi, June 6 (IBNS) In a crucial move, the Delhi High Court on Monday dismissed wrestler Sushil Kumar's plea seeking directions to Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) to hold selection trials in a bid to take decision on which wrestler will represent India in the 74 kg freestyle category in the upcoming Olympics.

The bench, comprising of  Justice Manmohan,  observed WFI was not wrong  for selecting Narsingh Yadav for the games.

India's iconic shooter Abhinav Bindra reacted to the decision taken by the court and tweeted: "Sushil Kumar is a legend. He should go to Rio - to support Nar singh from the sidelines . Will only enhance his stature."
