Indian Woes Continue

P T Ummer Koya, Honorary Secretary of the All India Chess Federation (AICF), is a man under sieged. News Today reports that three Indian chess associations have filed suits in the Madras High Court in order for Koya to be removed from his post. The charge? Various acts of "misfeasance and malfeasance".

In response, the High Court has directed the AICF head honcho, N Srinavasan, to convene a new meeting for the purpose of electing new office bearers.

A history of the AICF's troubles are available here and here.
