SAI lodges FIR to demand probe into false advertisement for next year's Khelo India Games

@kheloindia
The Sports Authority of India has received several complaints from grassroot -level athletes from across the country. In an advertisement posted on social media platforms athletes have been asked to deposit 6000 rupees for enrolling in the Khelo India camp to participate in the Khelo India Games. The games are scheduled in Panchkula in Haryana in 2021. Acting as an aspirant SAI officials managed to get bank account details of the person, who is a resident of Agra.

The advertisement also uses the logos of the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Sports Authority of India and Khelo India, which misled several athletes to believe it to be a government advertisement.
 
The Sports Authority of India has lodged an FIR with the Uttar Pradesh police and asked for an immediate investigation of the issue. Khelo India is a government scheme and athletes do not need to pay any money to participate in it.
