The Tourism Ministry, which is responsible for furnishing the Commonwealth Games Village, has ordered an in-house inquiry into the collapse of the bed of boxing gold medallist Akhil Kumar.

Tourism Minister Kumari Selja said a probe has been ordered into Saturday's incident which shocked the Indian boxing team immediately after they checked in at their residential block.

Indian Tourism Development Corporation, which comes under the Tourism Ministry, is responsible for furnishing in the Games Village here.

The 10-member Indian team, comprising among others Olympic and world championship bronze medallist Vijender Singh, were also kept waiting for nearly four hours at the Olympic Bhavan here for the bus to take them to the Games' Village.

Selja said whoever is found guilty after the inquiry is complete will be punished.

Official sources said the material was imported from China and it was assembled in India before it was brought to the Games Village.

They said the problem could have been because of improper assembling of the bed and it is being checked.
