Indian Chess Federation (AICF) attacks its best female player, ACP Premium Member Humpy Koneru with the appeal to FIDE Ethics Commission and very harsh rhetoric: Article by The Hindu: AICF moves Ethics Commission
 
ACP is concerned about the situation and will monitor the situation closely, asking FIDE to investigate this case thoroughly, checking the possible misconduct by the organizers and arbiter(s), which served as a trigger for the whole case.
 
Please, find Humpy's statement we have received in this regard:
"It`s painful to read such adverse and annoying statements by my own federation published in "The Hindu". But what I have done is for justice and for respect towards chess players in India.I believe change cannot be achieved without the difficult situations,struggle or the pain.I wish that in future no player should suffer facing such circumstances."
