Narsingh Yadav, a popular Indian wrestler was gaining popularity for the last few weeks for all the wrong reasons. He has been ordered a ban of four years as per the instructions of Court of Arbitration (CAS) last month. A decision was taken by the Wrestling Federation of India on 16th September where they stated that the doping case of Narsingh Yadav has been handed over to the CBI and they have already started their probe into the matter. His case was referred to the CBI by the prime minister’s office. As per the statement of the president of WFI, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, he met the prime minister and personally asked him to hand over the case of Yadav to the CBI.
As per his statement, “Prime Minister’s Office has referred Narsingh’s case to CBI for further investigation and proceedings are learned to have started into the wrestler’s doping scandal.”
Earlier, Narsingh was prohibited from participating in the Olympics as per the orders from CAS. They also threatened Yadav to ruin his entire career. Considering that kind of situation, the WFI was demanding a CBI investigation in the case.
Just 20 days before the Olympic Games, Narsingh’s medical reports suggested that he has been consuming a banned substance. In his statement, Narsingh had said that he has been conspired upon and he has nothing to do with all this as he is not aware of consuming any such thing. He also said that someone had spiked his drink or food with the banned substance.
As Yadav could not produce any evidence proving his accusation of sabotaging, the CAS had banned him to participate in the Olympics. Although he got a clean chit from NADA, a challenge from WADA debarred him for participating.
Yadav was earlier in news when Sushil Kumar, who is already an Olympic medallist, dragged him to the court by slapping a legal notice.
