New Delhi: Indian boxers will miss the Chemistry Cup in Germany after not getting the visas on time but the national federation has assured that the pugilists will be compensated by being sent for another event soon.

A 10-member new-look team, which included two Asian youth medallists, was to travel to Halle, Germany on late Sunday evening for the 44th edition of the tournament.

But the plan was thrown haywire after their visas could not come through.

"The visas could not come because we got to know quite late that the applications for Schengen visas are now supposed to be filed from the region to which you belong. We were used to a centralised process which could be done from Delhi," Boxing Federation of India (BFI) President Ajay Singh told PTI.
