Doping controversy hits National Games Village
Ranchi: Controversy hit the National Games
today when syringes and vials were allegedly found at the
wrestling venue here, pointing to possible doping even as the
Jharkhand Wrestling Association vehemently denied any wrestler
"We have deputed ten persons to keep a strong watch over
any drug-related incident. I am also overseeing everything.
How can only one news channel pick up a stray syringe in the
toilet and that too even before the wrestlers reached the
venue this morning," JWA president Bholanath Singh said.
He was replying to a query as to whether syringes and
vials were found in the toilets by the cleaning staff at the
Ganpatrai Indoor Stadium at Mega Sports Complex.
"The venue had also hosted Taekwondo, gymnastics and
other competitions before wrestling started yesterday. How can
you say that the syringe found in the toilet was of
wrestlers?" Singh asked.
"It is absolutely wrong to say that whatever stuff found
in the toilets belonged to a wrestler," Singh said and added
he would call a press conference to clarify things.
"So far there is no doping incident," he asserted.
