Mohali: Boxer Ram Singh, who has been summoned by the Punjab Police for interrogation in a drug haul case, has reportedly admitted to have met the arrested drug dealer along with Vijender Singh several times since December.
Ram has also claimed to have bought heroin from drug peddler Anup Singh Kahlon. He however, denied that he and Vijender are habitual drug users.
A leading English daily on Saturday quoted a source as saying that in December Ram took heroin and later introduced it to Vijender as well.
In January, the duo came to Zirakpur and took another doze of heroin from Rocky. Since their first doze in December, the boxers procured the drug from Kahlon or Rocky at least six times till February," the daily quoted a source as saying.
Ram Singh was undergoing training at the National Institute of Sports in Punjab`s Patiala town when he was summoned to Fategarh Sahib for questioning. He had joined the police probe late Friday.
The names of boxers Vijender Singh and Ram Singh cropped up after Anoop Singh Kahlon, an NRI, was arrested with 26 kg of heroin in a raid late Thursday.
