275. North India Handball Sports Club
Corporal punishment as result of losing games was the training method used in this club. As result of this in Denmark illegal approach 11 teenage players ran away when they participated in a Handball tournament. When the authorities located some of the missing boys they had clear signs of damages as result of the training methods. They were taken to a refugee facility where they can decide if they want political asylum in Denmark.
Unfortunately the coaches managed to leave Denmark before the reason for the boys escape became clear. Hopefully the team or any other team from India which uses the same kind of practice methods is not invited to Denmark the next time they want to arrange an international handball tournament.
It is clear to state that it could not be fun as a teenager to be part of this team.
