Sushil Kumar denies writing letter to Prime Minister seeking intervention in ongoing controversy
Sushil said that there was no truth behind the ongoing media stories about his request for intervention to PMO.
New Delhi: Giving a new twist to the already much talked about story, ace Indian grappler Sushil Kumar has denied writing any letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking intervention into the current controversy about his pending trial against Wrestler Narsingh Yadav.
Speaking to market4sports, the two-time Olympic medallist said that there was no truth behind the ongoing media stories about his request for intervention to PMO.
In a fresh setback on Sunday, Sushil was omitted from the Wrestling Federation of India's Rio Preparatory camp, which is scheduled to begin in Sonepat from Wednesday, as only the quota place earning wrestlers have been included in the list.
As per rules, Narsingh Pancham Yadav has been included in the men's 74kg freestyle division for the camp as he had acquired the berth at the World Championship last year, while Sushil's name does not figure.
"The Rio preparatory camp is starting on Wednesday and all those wrestlers who have earned Olympic quota places are being included in the camp," a WFI official told PTI.
