HC stays ‘Khel Ratna’ for Sania

Girisha & SaniaAdmitting a petition filed by Para Olympic athlete H N Girisha, Karnataka high court has passed interim orders imposing a stay on the government announcement to give Khel Ratna award to tennis sensation Sania Mirza. Girisha moved the court stating that she did not win any medal during 2011-2014 and though he holds 90 points as per rules he did not get justice in the award selection. In 2012 he won a silver in Summer Para Olympics for high jump which gave him 9th place in the Para Olympics and that apart he also hit the records as a third athlete for winning silver. In 2013 he received Padma Sri.
