Rio 2016: Narsingh Yadav Files FIR In Dope Controversy
NARSINGH Yadav has filed a complaint at the Rai police station in Sonepat, accusing a 17-year-old wrestler of allegedly mixing a banned drug in his food that led to him failing a dope test.
On Wednesday, a National Anti Doping Agency (NADA) disciplinary panel hearing will determine if Narsingh can compete in the Olympic Games starting in Rio on August 5. The 26-year-old wrestler has been accused of taking an anabolic steroid, metadienone, and is under provisional suspension.
The teenaged wrestler named in Narsingh’s complaint, filed late on Tuesday, is a trainee at the Chhatrasal Stadium in Delhi and has represented the country in junior international tournaments, said sources. Police sources said that an FIR may be filed after seeking legal advice.
Incidentally, Narsingh’s competitor in the 74-kg category, Sushil Kumar, trains at the Chatrasal Stadium under coach Satpal Singh. “It’s a good thing that Narsingh has filed a complaint in the case as it will bring us closer to the truth. If a cadet from Chatrasal has done this, he will be punished,” said Satpal.
