New Delhi: Wrestler Sandeep Tulsi Yadav, Narsingh Yadav’s roommate at Sports Authority of India (SAI) in Sonepat, failed a NADA dope test on Monday. This has come as a second big shock to India after Narsingh Yadav failed two dope tests, as reported on July 24.
Narsingh Yadav and Sandeep Tulsi both have been tested positive for the same banned substance. The World Federation of India says that this revelation further strengthens the theory of conspiracy and indicates towards some sort of foul play.

Narsingh Yadav, after failing the dope test, had also alleged of a conspiracy against him. Now, the WFI coming out with the same statement supporting his allegations gives hope to both the wrestlers stuck in this mess.
“The fact that Narsingh’s roommate at the camp has also tested positive for the same substance, it clearly looks to be a foul play. Both the wrestlers were consuming the same supplements as they were roommates. It arises suspicion,” WFI assistant secretary Vinod Tomar said.
