The club refused to forego the three points, taking the matter to the Delhi High Court.advertisementThe court asked Minerva to go back to the AIFF I-League Committee for a resolution. The decision to have a re-match was, however, taken by the AIFF’s Emergency Committee.The League Committee had referred the matter to emergency panel, which comprises the AIFF President, five vice-Presidents and the Secretary General.Asked if there was still a chance of the match being held in Srinagar, Dhar said, “Let us wait for what Real Kashmir wants, in their reply.”Both the clubs are already out of title contention.Also Read | Delhi High Court rejects Minerva Punjab plea against AIFF over Real Kashmir game in SrinagarAlso Read | Exclusive: Secure or not?
