Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today assured wrestler Narsingh Yadav that his government will request the centre to order CBI probe into the doping scandal, which has led to the grappler being handed a four-year ban.
"We will request the central government to order a CBI inquiry into all aspects related to (Narsingh Yadav) the case so that the guilty are brought to book. CBI inquiry will ward off possibilities of similar incidents taking place with sportspersons in future," the CM said after a meeting with Narsingh, who met Akhilesh at his official residence here.
