There is outrage in India after its top sports body was suspended by the International Olympic Committee ahead of elections in which officials accused of corruption were to be appointed.
The Indian press called it an "Olympian shame" after the IOC declared void the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) election, due to be held on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, IOC said the election "had been tarnished since the start".
The ban prevents athletes competing for India at future Olympics.
India had won six medals at London 2012
