Argentina team attacked
India were defeated comprehensively by Argentina by 3-0 at Raipur during the Hockey World League finals. Argentina dominated the entire match and the India team struggled to coordinate during the entire match.
According to reports this has sparked intense reaction in India as the bus carrying the Argentina team from the stadium to the hotel was attacked and stones were hurled at team but thankfully no player was injured but the windows were cracked due to the incident.
This has led to review of the security situation and the officials have decided to tighten the security and take measures to counter such issues.
Although the India media is reporting that it was just an accident but it remains to be seen whether that is the truth or are they trying to cover up the matter to avoid criticism.
This is not the first team such extremist acts have been associated with sports in India because recently Shiv Sena extremists also barged into BCCI headquarters when the the PCB delegation was on a visit to India regarding the cricket series.
