Mohali: Olympic medallist Vijender Singh has not been let off the hook in the Mohali drug haul but the authorities are not too keen to question the boxer either.

According to reports quoting sources, Vijender’s direct link with the case is yet to be established and the police are more interested in arresting the drug racketeers.

"We will be summoning Vijender for questioning. However, at present, the focus of our investigation is to catch other smugglers in this case," Fatehgarh Sahib SSP Hardyal Singh Mann said.

So far seven people have been arrested after the recovery of 26 kg heroin worth Rs 130 crore from the house of alleged drug peddler and NRI Anoop Singh Kahlon in Chandigarh.

The Haryana police too is keeping a tab on Vijender after his name cropped up in the case, official sources said adding that a SP-level officer of crime branch was in constant touch with the Punjab police in this case.
