Defender Harmanjot Khabra handed a two match ban; will miss matches against Mumbai and Goa

Kerala Blasters’ Harmanjot Singh Khabra has been handed a two-match suspension and a fine of INR 1.5 lakhs for “hitting an opponent when not challenging for the ball” during an Indian Super League contest against Hyderabad FC in February.

Upon investigating video footage of the incident, the AIFF disciplinary committee show-caused the player. In his written response, Khabra regretted “making an error in sporting judgment and acting in a manner which is not in line with the laws of the game.” He said it was “never his intention to hurt Sahil Tavora.”

Khabra will remain suspended for Kerala Blasters FC’s last two ISL league-stage matches this season against Mumbai City FC (March 2) and FC Goa (March 6).
