Chinese Super League footballers holed up in hotels for two months to prevent the spread of coronavirus will be able to pass the time by doing karaoke and playing badminton, an official said. CSL clubs and players have voiced concerns about their mental well-being due to being stuck in a strictly closed environment when the virus-delayed season kicks off on July 25. This year’s truncated campaign, which was supposed to start on February 22, will see the 16 clubs divided into two groups playing in two different cities during the first phase. Half the teams will be based at a single hotel in Suzhou, near Shanghai, while the others will be confined to a hotel in the northeastern city of Dalian. Players and staff will not be allowed outside the hotel, training ground and stadium, to stop any coronavirus infections spreading. Referees will be subjected to the same harsh restrictions for at least two months and matches will be played behind closed doors. Asked how the Chinese Football Association will safeguard physical and mental health, secretary-general Liu Yi said: “This is a topic of great concern to the football association, various clubs and the media. “At the hotel base camps where the clubs will stay we have set up a variety of cultural and recreational activities,” he told Xinhua news agency, after the CFA outlined Wednesday the steps it was taking to launch the new season. “That includes reading rooms, swimming pools, badminton courts, karaoke, etc. “To give you an insight, I just went to Suzhou the day before yesterday to solve the problem of setting up a hairdressing room in the hotel. “We believe that through various means, the players and referees can be balanced and happy.” Usually, the bottom two teams are relegated from the CSL, but this season only the last-placed club will automatically drop down. The team that finishes one off the bottom will go into a play-off with the second-placed team in China’s second tier, with the winner earning a spot in next year’s CSL.

If promotion and relegation are cancelled, the CSL will be less fair and competitive,” he told Xinhua.

The central probe agency had filed a chargesheet against the four accused in May 2014 but had not added murder charges, saying at the time that investigators could not find any evidence of the crime having been premeditated. The CBI had charged the four accused persons under sections 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder), 342 (wrongful confinement), 201 (destruction of evidence) and 34 (common purpose) of the Indian Penal Code along with the relevant sections of the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act.

While asking for directions at a Paneer shop, he was allegedly ridiculed for his hairstyle, after which Tania — the son of an erstwhile Congress MLA — in a fit of rage, broke the shop’s glass counter. Tania was brutally beaten up in the fight that ensued and succumbed to his injuries the next day. According to the panel of doctors who performed his post mortem at AIIMS here, Tania died due to a cerebro pulmonary edema caused by a blunt weapon. The student had suffered internal injuries to his brain and lungs. The case had caused quite a stir across the Capital when it came to light with sharp reactions from political parties and human rights organisations alike. The incident had also led to a series of protests in Delhi by the victim’s friends, family and members of the North-Eastern community. While the case was first probed by the Delhi Police, it was transferred to the CBI on orders of the Central Government after Tania’s parents met with then Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi. The victim’s family had at one point also alleged that Delhi Police had taken Tania to the scene of the crime, where he was assaulted a second time, with Delhi Police strongly denying all of these allegations.
