The CBI on Tuesday registered a case over Narsingh Yadav’s dope test. The Haryana government had on October 7 referred the dope case of wrestler Narsingh Yadav registered in Sonepat to the CBI for further investigation.

The case had ruled out Yadav’s participation in the 74-kg freestyle wrestling event at the recent Rio Olympic Games after the CAS slapped a four-year ban on the grappler on August 18.

On the basis of a complaint made by Yadav, the Haryana police had on July 27 registered a criminal case against a junior wrestler, Jitesh, and others on charges of criminal conspiracy.

The FIR was registered at Rai police station in Sonepat district. Yadav, in his complaint, alleged that wrestler Jitesh, who practices in Chhatarsal stadium at New Delhi, spiked his food supplements. He also claimed involvement of certain influential persons in the conspiracy.

The 26-year-old wrestler had flunked the dope test conducted for a banned steroid on June 25 by the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA).
