Drugs recovered from boxer Ram Singh's relative's house: Reports

Zeenews Sports Bureau

Mohali: In a fresh trouble for star boxer Vijender Singh, the Punjab Police have reportedly recovered drugs from his sparring partner Ram Singh’s relatives’ home.

5 kg of ice – a recreational drug – has been recovered from Singh’s brother-in-law’s house.

The police also reportedly have recovered 90 kg of Pseudoephedrine, a banned performance enhancing drug from the house.

Ram Singh confessed to have consumed drug after being questioned by Punjab Police following the arrest of drug racket`s alleged kingpin, Anoop Singh Kahlon in March this year.

The recovery of a car, registered in the name of Vijender`s wife, outside the Zirakpur flat belonging to Anoop from where heroin worth Rs 130 crore was recovered last month, led to the boxer`s name cropping up in the scandal.

Punjab Police on Sunday claimed that Vijender had consumed heroin 12 times after procuring it from Anoop.

The drug scandal implicating Vijender took a new twist on Tuesday with his fellow boxer and Asian Games silver-medallist Dinesh Kumar claiming that Punjab Police planted the star pugilist`s car outside the flat from where heroin was recovered.
