New Delhi, News Nation Bureau | Updated : 14 December 2014, 01:37 PM

Playing it hard, Hockey India on Sunday warned Pakistan of suspending playing ties if players do not submit their apology for removing T-shirts of the ground.

FIH had also ordered an enquiry into Pakistan’s indecent behavior after winning the semi-final match against India.

Pakistani players shamelessly hurled obscene gestures towards Indian fans and media after their win over India but no action will be taken against them as their coach Shahnaz Sheikh has apologised to the FIH for the incident.

Soon after their 4-3 win, Pakistani players went into a frenzy mode and started celebrating their victory in a wild fashion. They started dancing in jubilation.

They removed their shirts, used foul language and made obscene gestures towards the crowd and media, prompting their coach Shahnaz to come into action and take away his players.

Tournament Director Wiert Doyer then spoke to Pakistani camp and said International Hockey Federation (FIH) has accepted their apology.
