Anwar Ali takes AIFF to court over medical inquiry into heart condition


- Advertisment -

Former U-17 World Cup star Anwar Ali has approached the Delhi High Court, challenging the All India Football Federation’s (AIFF) medical inquiry that could potentially end his fledgling football career. The 20-year-old’s career has been in limbo since last November when he was diagnosed with a rare heart condition known as Apical Hyper Cardio Myopathy.

The writ petition filed in the Delhi HC by Ali’s advocates Amitabh Tewari and Abhimanyu Tewari on Monday names the AIFF and the AIFF’s sports medical committee as respondents. The petition seeks, among other things, the quashing of a letter sent by the AIFF to Mohammedan Sporting on September 7, 2020, directing the club to not allow Ali to train with the team.

The petition also questions the status of the AIFF sports medical committee, tasked by the AIFF with recommending to the executive committee whether Ali could continue to play. The petition requests the court to issue directions prohibiting the medical committee from proceeding with the matter currently pending, alleging the committee is not formed in compliance with Article 35(4) of the AIFF Constitution.”

The petition also calls for the court to direct the AIFF to screen all players in AIFF competitions for HCM (Hypertrophic Cardio Myopathy). It also requests a stay on both the letter sent by the AIFF to Mohammedan Sporting on September 7 as well as the medical committee’s proceedings until the disposal of Ali’s petition.

“We have filed a writ and it will come up for hearing either on Wednesday or Thursday. We have sent the AIFF a copy. So they know about the case,” Tewari told ESPN.
