New Delhi: Delhi High Court has issued notice to the Sports Ministry directing it to conduct elections in all sports federations where they are due. Elections in the Archery Federation are due since February, 2012.

Advocate Rahul Mehra alleged that the current incumbent President of the Archery Foundation VK Malhotra was not getting the elections done because by the new age and tenure criteria, his candidature will be rejected.
