1. The petition was filed impugning, (i) the order dated 14th August,
2015 of the respondent Sports Authority of India (SAI); and, (ii) the
exclusion of the petitioner from ongoing camp organised from 29 th July,
2015 to 20th September, 2015 for preparation of the International
Competition scheduled in 2015 for Senior Men and Women National
Gymnastics Coaching Camp at Indira Gandhi Sports Complex, New Delhi.
Mandamus is also sought directing the respondent SAI to include the name
of the petitioner as a coach in the ongoing camp.
2. Though the petition was filed without enclosing the impugned order
dated 14th August, 2015 but when the same came up before this Court on 3 rd
September, 2015, notice thereof was issued. Counter affidavit has been field
by the respondent SAI along with the copy of the letter, and not order, dated
14th August, 2015 of the respondent SAI and to which the counsel for the
petitioner for the sake of expediency did not chose to file a rejoinder. On the
contention of the counsel for the petitioner that the term for which the camp
was being held was to expire on 20th September, 2015, the counsels have
been heard finally on the petition at this stage itself.
