Taking a disciplinary action, International Boxing Association (AIBA) slapped the ban on Sarita for refusing  to accept her bronze medal during the podium ceremony at Incheon Asian Games.

Sarita, a mother of one, was also fined 1,000 Swiss francs (USD 1020) for her action. “It is a good decision by AIBA. Initially, there was speculation that it will be a life ban. One year will pass
very quickly. I heard she is injured so she will recover also," Vijender said.
"I don't think it's a big penalty. She is a good boxer... I respect her," the winner of a bronze medal  at the Beijing Olympic Games, added. Vijender was in the city for an MTV programme.
