Blood spilt in golf-course brawl



Former Indian athlete Milkha Singh is under investigation by police for his alleged involvement in a brawl on a golf course in the northern city of Chandigarh, a report said on Tuesday.

Milkha, whose son Jeev Milkha Singh is a professional golfer, was among two groups of players who clashed violently at the Chandigarh Golf Club on Saturday, the Times of India said.

The brawl "left the 16th tee blood-splattered and three senior club members wounded", the paper said, adding the incident happened after an argument over which group would tee-off first.

One group accused the other of "raining blows with their driver clubs", while another player said he was repeatedly assaulted with golf sticks, the paper cited the complaint to the police as saying.

Milkha, 77, one of India's finest runners who narrowly missed a medal at the 1960 Rome Olympics, denied he was involved in the fight.

"I have been dragged into it because of my name," he told the Times of India. "This is a shameful episode for our club. I condemn such violence."

Club secretary Sandeep Sandhu said Milkha was not among the three players who had been suspended from playing on the course till the investigation is completed.
