Indian men’s hockey team’s iconic goalkeeper PR Sreejesh on Friday took to Twitter to express his disappointment for being charged extra for his luggage on domestic carrier IndiGo. “FIH allowed me to play with a 41 inch hockey stick, but indigo6e never allowed me to carry anything more than 38 inches,” Sreejesh tweeted. What to do? Pay extra Rs 1500 to handle goalkeeper baggage,” he wrote. He also shared a picture of an IndiGo receipt for the additional baggage charge. He also added the hashtag “#loot”.

Sreejesh was part of the bronze medal winning Indian team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics held last year.

He played an important role as India won its first hockey medal at the Olympics since 1980.
