I’ll give samples to NADA, says Vijender Singh
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Mohali: Star boxer and Olympic bronze medallist Vijender Singh has said that he will give his blood and hair samples to National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) and not the police.
The boxer had on Monday refused to provide the samples to the police that raised several questions and reports claimed that his denial might lead to legal actions against him.
However, according to reports he is willing to undergo tests provided it is done by the ant-doping agency.
Vijender was quizzed by the Punjab police for about five hours on Monday in the Mohali drug bust.
However, NADA had earlier denied testing Vijender saying it is a matter to be investigated by the Police and the anti-doping agency has no role in this.
“It’s basically a police and narcotics case and the NADA is not in the scene,” a top NADA source had said.
Vijender is in the dock following revelations that he along with his friend, Ram Singh had consumed drugs -- a claim which the former has denied.
