The five hockey players who were suspended by the Bangladesh Hockey Federation and later convicted in a police case pleaded innocence over the allegations levied against them in a press conference at the Dhaka Mariner Young's Club yesterday.

The players -Hockey Players Welfare Association Rasel Khan Bappi,general secretary of the association Arful Haque Prince, Asaduzzaman Chandan, Shamsuddin Tuhin and Asihiquzzman - attained an eight week anticipatory bail against their cases and said all the facts that were written in the case are not true.

"We did not hit the Pakistani hockey coach, and he himself said that but hockey federation said that we hit the coach, which is very unfortunate," said Prince. The players said there were also a number of other players involved in the incident but they were not accused.

They said they will go for a bigger demonstration after Eid.
