New Delhi: Shattering India’s hope of being represented in the upcoming Rio Olympics, shot-put athlete Inderjeet Singh’s ‘B’ sample has also been found positive. As a result, the athlete has been banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) for four years.
Inderjeet’s first test was done on June 22, which had turned out to be positive. Inderjeet claimed foul play and alleged that his sample was tampered. Following this, another test was conducted which, unfortunately, also turned out positive. 
Singh had clinched the gold medal in Asian championships, Asian Grand Prix and the World University Games last year.
Recently, Narsingh Yadav also faced the same trouble but eventually came out clear. National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) agreed to his claim of conspiracy giving the 74-kg wrestler a clean chit.
