AIFF acts tough

New Delhi: The All India Football Federation (AIFF) on Tuesday showcaused East Bengal secretary Kalyan Majumdar for making "derogatory" remarks against the national body's decision to revoke the ban on Mohun Bagan.

The East Bengal official has been asked to explain why action should not be taken against him under AIFF's code of ethics. The letter has directed Majumdar to explain his position within seven days.

Soon after the federation revoked the ban on Mohun Bagan on January 15, Majumdar was quoted making a few disparaging comments against senior AIFF officials.
