National coach Pullela Gopichand on Thursday refused to comment on the controversy over Prajakta Sawant who had accused him of "mental harassment" in her petition to the Bombay high court which has allowed the shuttler to attend the ongoing training camp at his badminton academy in Hyderabad.
"At the moment, I don't want to speak about it. Basically SAI ( Sports Authority of India) and BAI ( Badminton Association of India) are aware of it. They will take a call. I don't know," Gopichand said.
"I think BAI and SAI are fully aware of the matter and I have communicated to them. Whatever needs to be done at the right time, we will do it," said the former All England champion, who was in the city as brand ambassador for the unveiling of "Mumbai Games', a multi-sport competition featuring 8 teams from the city.
On Wednesday, in a relief to Prajakta, the Bombay high court allowed the player to attend the training camp at Gopi's academy, on from October 4 through December 12, after she was told by the coach not to join the camp when she asked him to change her doubles and mixed doubles partners.
