Ace badminton player Sourabh Verma recently lashed out at struggling airline Air India for damaging his luggage during the journey from New Delhi to Copenhagen, Denmark. The 26-year-old young shuttler condemned the actions of Air India staffers on social media.
World No. 46 Indian shuttler took to Twitter to complain about the authorities and tweeted, “really disappointed with the service that @airindiain has provided in the last few weeks. I was travelling from Delhi to Copenhagen and on receiving my baggage I found it had been mishandled and broken. I immediately filed a complaint with the @airindiain airport staff”.
Check out the post of star badminton player Sourabh Verma on Twitter slamming Air India staffers:
1/3 Hence @airindiain I would like you to look into this matter as soon as possible because I am a Badminton athlete and I travel frequently for tournaments. I need you to solve this issue as my bag was mishandled by your staff. I am attaching the relevant pictures. pic.twitter.com/iFMzMUe7nb

Verma slammed the airlines by tagging the images of his boarding pass and complaint receipt along with the damaged bag. This is not the first time when Verma is criticizing any authority as two months back he reacted strongly against the Badminton Association of India (BAI) when the officials decided to announce a new rule in which only top 25 world ranked players of Badminton World Federation (BWF) are eligible for financial assistance from the federation and the Sports Authority of India (SAI). This led the Indian shuttlers to knock on the door of BAI president Himanta Biswa Sarma for financial help. Ever since the rule came into action the Indian players are spending money from their own pockets.
The disciple of legendary badminton player Pulela Gopichand has recently made his last appearance in Slovenia International where he defeated Minoru Koga of Japan by 21-17, 21-12 in the final match of the tournament.
Earlier in 2011, Verma had won his very first ever international title by winning Bahrain international challenge. However, in the lavish tournament of Grand Prix Gold, Verma failed to clinch one more title at the same year against former Olympic champion Taufik Hidayat.
In 2013, Tata International Challenge, Verma edged past the Indian mate Prannoy Kumar at Mumbai to win the title. Right after a year of international challenge, Verma registered one more victory on his name as he defeated Alrie Guna Dharma to win Iran Fajr International Challenge in 2014. Moreover, at the time of 2014 Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold, Verma booked the second spot after battling in a head-on-head match against Simon Santoso.
