New Delhi, Dec 4: The International Olympic Committee (IOC) today suspended the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) due to government interference in election process.

IOA president Vijay Kumar Malhotra said the position is such that the IOA cannot go against the government, the court or the IOC.

"We can only now hope to create an atmosphere where all three come on the same page to find a solution," he said.

According to a senior IOA officials the election meeting, however, will go ahead as scheduled.(IANS)
