Kalinga Lancers’ drag-flicker Gurjinder Singh was on Monday handed a two-match suspension for physically assaulting a Jaypee Punjab Warriors player during their Hero Hockey India League (HHIL) match at Bhubaneswar.

The Disciplinary Committee of the HHIL met on Monday to discuss the conduct of Gurjinder in Sunday’s match between the Lancers and Warriors.

“The incident involved Gurjinder physically assaulting a player from the opponent team which clearly breached the HHIL Code of Conduct. The incident was proved by the video footage as well as Gurjinder accepting the assault on the field. HHIL Disciplinary Committee has suspended Gurjinder Singh from two matches,” HHIL said in a statement.

As per the suspension, Gurjinder will not be able to play the match against Ranchi Rays (February 6) and Dabang Mumbai (February 8).

Gurjinder had scored the only goal during his team’s 1-2 defeat against Punjab last night.
