Over accusations of doping on Indian wrestler Narsingh Yadav, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had today registered a case against the Commonwealth Games gold medalist.

Narsingh Yadav had been facing doping charges after the National Anti Doping Authority (NADA) conducted two positive anti-doping tests with methandienone following a regular weigh in. On the charges over him, Narsingh defended himself by assering that he was innocent and claimed his food was spiked as a part of a conspiracy by his rivals.

The wrestler had been ousted from the Rio Olympics this year after the Court of Arbitration of Sports (CAS) imposed a four year ban on doping charges. Yadav accused members of the Sports Authority of India (SAI) for tampering his food while he was undergoing training for the Olympics, with a young wrestler, Jitesh Kumar. The ban on the wrestler came following the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) appeal against the clean chit given to Narsingh Yadav by NADA.

Narsingh was selected over double-Olympic medalist Sushil Kumar, to represent India in the Rio Olympics 2016. But the wrestlers Rio dreams shattered following the charges placed by anti-doping authorities. The Haryana government had latter handed of the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation, and the case registered against Yadav came as a part of the investigation by the CBI.
