ISLAMABAD - The Pakistan Hockey Federation president Khalid Khokar on Friday threatened not to send its national team to India next year for the FIH World Cup without assurance of fool proof security and easy procurement visa.

The PHF president told the media that during recent meetings with FIH President Narinder Batra in Dubai, he had made it clear that Pakistan team should be guaranteed top security during the World Cup in India.

"We had a very good meeting as we conveyed all our concerns to Batra and other FIH member boards. I have made it clear to them that we want assurances from FIH that we will face no problems with procurement of visa and will be given top security during the event," Khokar claimed to have told Batra.

"I made it clear that if we face similar problems that our junior team faced in getting visas than we will not send our team to India," he added.
