The Chhattisgarh State Table Tennis Association suspended one of its female players and coach from the upcoming National Games after a shocking CCTV footage showed a few junior players coming out of their male coach's hotel room late at night.
The incident happened at around 1 a.m. in the night on December 26, 2014, during the 76th National Cadet and Sub-Junior Championship held in Andhra Pradesh.
The CCTV footage shows the male coach dragging a female player out of her hotel room while the girl is seen trying to fight off the coach's efforts.

We found out that the player and coach were fighting over a mobile phone, which was seen on the CCTV footage. This is a fight over a telephone and nothing else."
"We have suspended both coach and the player until inquiry," Shukla told the news channel.
