Indian hockey star Shivendra Singh has been suspended for three matches for injuring Pakistan's Fareed Ahmed above the eye when he tackled him.
The Indian players adopted foul play during Sunday's pool match against Pakistan in the men's World Cup.
The tournament director ruled after a hearing that Shivendra had raised the stick deliberately. The player will miss India's next three group matches against Australia, Spain and England.
