London: Brig P K Muralidharan Raja was on Thursday named as the acting Chef de Mission of the Indian contingent for the London Olympic Games because of indisposition of incumbent Ajitpal Singh.

Raja, who was the Deputy Chef de Mission, was asked to function as the acting Chef de Mission since Singh could not come to London because of severe spondylitis.

"Raja has been asked to act as acting Chef de Mission because of Ajitpal Singh's illness," IOA acting President Vijay Kumar Malhotra said.
