New Delhi: Wrestler Narsingh Yadav on Tuesday alleged that he has been framed and sought a CBI inquiry into doping case. He also demanded that culprits involved must be punished. The Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) on Monday ruled a four-year ban on the Indian grappler on doping charges.
The detailed report of the CAS hearing concluded that Yadav intentionally took banned substances and was not a victim of sabotage as he claimed to be. The ban has come as a huge blow to the career of 27-year-old.
In his defence, Yadav has said that it was a conspiracy against him by a fellow wrestler, who had mixed prohibited substance in his drinks on either June 23 or 24.
Meanwhile the president Wrestling Foundation of India, BB Sharan Singh claimed that it was a conspiracy.
“We reiterate our demand for a CBI inquiry,” said Sharan Singh.
He said that 3-4 medals were expected in Rio Olympics wrestling but sudden ban on Yadav and injury to Vinesh Phogat was a big blow.
After being tested positive for banned substances, Yadav was cleared on August 1 by the National Anti Doping Agency (NADA) which allowed him to travel to Rio.
