Indian Sports Minister Anurag Thakur on Wednesday said that the Home Ministry will be involved in the decision on India’s participation in the 2025 Champions Trophy in Pakistan.

“In the past, many countries had pulled out of going there because of security concerns. As you all know, players were even attacked while playing over there and that’s a big issue,” Thakur told reporters.

“When international championships are held, many factors are taken into account. When the time comes, we will see what to do. We will assess the security situation then and decide,” he added.
