After reviewing medical opinions, the IBF has decided that if professional boxers compete in Rio it would be considered unsportsmanlike behaviour and they would be sanctioned.
Boxing India is confident of Sarita's return to the ring before too long after the AIBA suspended the 29-year-old for her petulant display at the recent Asian Games.
The IOA expressed surprise that the International Boxing Association has granted provisional approval to an Indian boxing body without consulting it.
The AIBA has clearly stated that no Indian official will be allowed to accompany the boxers and coaches in any international competition.
