Dinesh (91kg), Dilbag Singh (69kg) and Praveen Kumar (+91kg) have alleged that the coaches and the selection committee ignored them, despite their "good performance" in the trial bouts which concluded on Thursday.
Asian Games silver-medallist Manpreet Singh (91kg), Asian Championships silver-medallist Mandeep Jangra and reigning national champion Satish (+91kg) were the boxers who were picked ahead of them for the October 11 to 27 World Championships in Kazakhstan.
The three dissenting boxers were beaten in exciting open trial bouts in front of a packed hall of fellow boxers and a selection panel which included veterans such as Mehtab Singh and Padam Bahadur Mal besides Indian Boxing Federation Secretary General Rajesh Bhandari.
"We will take the selection committee to the court for this unfair decision," Dinesh said at a press conference.      

An 11-time national champion and former Commonwealth champion Dilbag went to the extent of saying that Olympian Arjuna awardee Akhil Kumar, who has mentored Mandeep, was behind his name being struck off.
"The coaches and the selection committee are compromised. They have been bribed. Akhil is behind this because I had won the bout but I have been unfairly treated because I do not appease the coaches," a furious Dilbag alleged.
"I am being unfairly targetted since 2009. I just want the trial results to be made public," he said.
