New Delhi, Oct 10: Ace badminton player Jwala Gutta will be allowed to participate in upcoming tournaments till the Badminton Association of India (BAI) takes a final decision on the issue of her alleged indiscipline, the Delhi High Court said on Thursday.

Justice VK Jain allowed Gutta's plea and said that the BAI must allow her to play in the tournament. However the court also said that a detailed order on her plea will be passed later in the day.

The court said that till the committee takes a final stand, she must be allowed to play.

Gutta is supposed to participate in Denmark Open, scheduled from October 15 to 20 and the French Open from October 22 to 27.

Gutta: BAI's decision will affect my right to live and dignity

The BAI had recommended a life ban on Gutta for trying to stop some players of her franchise Krrish Delhi Smashers from playing a match against Banga Beats in the Indian Badminton League in August this year.

Gutta had moved to the Delhi HC in the hope that the life ban be lifted and also said that the BAI's decision will affect her right to live with dignity.
