Badminton player Jwala Gutta appealed to the Delhi High Court against the life ban imposed by the Badminton Association of India.
Before imposing the ban the Badminton Association of India gave her a chance to give an apology for which she refused as giving such letter amounts to accepting her act as a wrong doing. Other players called the act of banning Jwala Gutta for life by the Association as a wrong decision.
Jwala was accused of attempting to stop her teammates in the Krrish Delhi Smashers franchise from taking to the court to play Banga Beats in a Indian Badminton League clash. The committee had stated that Jwala's case could be reconsidered should she offer an unconditional apology to BAI.
