New Delhi: The ill-fated Narsingh Yadav doping saga took a new turn on Sunday with the Wrestling Federation of India demanding a CBI probe into the fiasco.

The Indian wrestler's dream of competing in Rio Olympics 2016 came to end on Friday after the Court for Arbitration for Sport (CAS) uplheld the World Anti Doping Agency`s (WADA) appeal against the clean chit given to him in a doping violation case.

The ad hoc division of the CAS also slapped a four-year ban on the Mumbai wrestler.

Narsingh, who bagged the quota in Men`s 74kg freestyle category with a bronze medal finish in last year`s World Championships, ran into trouble over alleged doping offences.

He first returned positive for a banned steroid following a dope test on June 25 by NADA, before being cleared on August 1.

However, Narsingh had claimed of a conspiracy to frame him and had filed a police report in this regard, although he refrained from naming anyone.
