Boxer Akhil Kumar, a medal hope in the Games, is frustrated with the apathetic attitude of the management towards its players and warns it can affect their performance in the mega event.

"I am very disappointed with the indifferent attitude of our management. A few days back, I was down with viral fever and I brought it to the notice of our chief coach. But he advised me to take medicines from a private doctor," Akhil told the media.

"I also had a rash on my thigh, but the coach told me to consult a doctor on my own. I had to go to a skin specialist and took medicines for fever from a chemist, but the team's authorised doctor did not ask me even once about these problems."

Chief coach G.S. Sandhu said he will speak to Akhil. "There are many things not under our control but we have to manage. I will again talk to Akhil regarding this matter," a visibly disturbed Sandhu said.
