Narsingh Yadav’s Rio hopes have taken a second hit after his July 5 samples also tested positive

Ever since the reports concerning Narsingh Yadav’s failed dope test started doing the rounds, the wrestler has pleaded innocent and hinted at a possible conspiracy behind the occurrence. Now a FIR has been filed with the Sonepat Police Station by the under-fire wrestler for spiking his food.

With a history of giving numerous dope tests and coming out clean every time, it was indeed fishy that the Commonwealth Gold medallist wrestler would resort to taking performance-enhancing drugs at an out-of-competition time so close to Rio Olympics 2016.

With the weight of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Mr. Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh and his compatriots from the wrestling fraternity behind him, the onus is still on Narsingh to prove his innocence and also to enable the investigating authorities to resolve the matter in view of all informative evidence at their disposal. Thereby, he called for a CBI probe into the issue so that the open questions at the moment can be answered at the earliest and overturn the provisional suspension that he is under.

As more details began to unfurl, it was learnt that Narsingh’s food might have been tampered with at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) Centre in Sonepat where both Narsingh and his sparring partner Sandeep Tulsi Yadav were training when the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) conducted the tests.

It was also brought to the fore that the perpetrator who mixed the banned substance into Narsingh’s food has been identified after which the wrestler went ahead and filed a FIR under Section 328 and 120B, at the Sonepat Police Station naming two young fellow wrestlers responsible for the heinous act.
