New Delhi: Rotten food has been served for the London-bound Indian wrestlers, who are training at Sonepat ahead of the Olympics, according to reports.

Former swimmer Khajan Singh, a member of the sports ministry`s monitoring panel, expressed shock to see rotten fruit being used to make juice in a dirty kitchen.

"I was shocked to see rotten fruits used to make juice and unhygienic conditions in the kitchen," Singh, a silver-medallist at the 1986 Asian Games said. "There is no dietician or medical expert to oversee the quality of food being served."

The wrestlers at the training camp includes Beijing Olympics bronze medallist Sushil Kumar.
