Following the intervention of the Delhi High Court on Friday, wrestler Geetika Jakhar's name was included in the team for the last Olympic qualification tournament, to be held in Helsinki from April 4.

After being denied the opportunity to represent the country in the qualifiers, Geetika had filed a petition against the Wrestling Federation of India, which had dropped her from the squad despite winning the selection trial. The court, on Friday, ordered WFI to include her in the squad.
