Choudhry is from Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh.
When contacted, the NRAI was not forthcoming on the issue but said the manager-cum-coach has been released by the
customs department at IGI.
“He has been allowed to go and is already in Aligarh. We don’t have all the details and can’t say if he was actually detained or not,” a NRAI official said.
The manager, caught in the middle of controversy, is learnt to be close to a couple of top NRAI officials.
