Akhil Kumar
New Delhi, Sep 26: Akhil Kumar, the prominent player of Indian boxing team, started his CWG journey with a shock as his bed, at the games village, collapsed as soon as he rested on that.

"We reached at the Olympic Bhavan late in the afternoon to collect our accreditation cards. But when I sat down on my bed to take rest it collapse," said Akhil.

He continued, "I checked the bed and part of it has no plywood on it. It was very disappointing after enduring a long journey. The athletes are at least entitled a decent place to rest. Even the toilets are not very clean."

The 10-member Indian team, comprising among others Olympic and world championship bronze medalist, Vijender Singh, were also kept waiting for nearly four hours at the Olympic Bhavan for the bus to take them to the Games' Village.
