Gurbaj SinghSenior India hockey player Gurbaj Singh was on 10 August 2015 suspended for 9 months for indulging in groupism and creating disharmony within the team.

This suspension means that Gurbaj will be unable to play for India till 9 May 2016. It may shatter the midfielder's dream of playing in 2016 Rio Olympics.

The decision to suspend Gurbaj was taken after a meeting of Hockey India's disciplinary committee headed by Harbinder Singh with the midfielder and former India coach Jude Felix. The coach levelled the charges against Gurbaj in his report after July 2015 Hockey World League Semifinals in Antwerp, Belgium.

Besides Harbinder, the Hockey India disciplinary panel also included former players RP Singh, AB Subbaiah and Jasjeet Handa.

Gurbaj, however, has the option to lodge an appeal with Hockey India's appellate tribunal within a month's time.
