Vijender Singh will face consequences if found guilty: NADA
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Mohali: Olympian Vijender Singh, whose name has cropped up in the 130-crore drug haul, finds himself in more trouble with National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA), after the organisation revealed that the pugilist may have to face a ban of up to 2 years if he is found guilty.
NADA Director General Mukul Chaterjee told an English news channel that heroine is a performance enhancing drug and the boxer will be punished if he is found guilty.
Vijender, who has so far denied any connection with the drug haul, refused to give his blood and hair samples to the Punjab police for forensic examination. However, he later gave the samples to the Haryana police, where he also serves as a DSP.
His refusal to comply with the police investigation has only raised speculations about his tacit involvement in the drug haul.
Fellow boxer Ram Singh had admitted to using drugs with Vijender thinking it to be food supplements.
