Stating that a conspiracy is being instigated against him, Narsingh Yadav on Monday said that he is shocked at failing the dope test and a CBI probe should be conducted to look into the matter. “I am myself shocked after this, it’s a conspiracy against me. CBI probe should be conducted”. “I am doing so well, why would I even take banned steroids?”, he added. Ahead of the Rio Olympics 2016, India’s strong contingent for the games, got a setback, when Yadav, tested positive for a banned substance. National Anti-Doping Agency, conducted a test a few weeks ago, on the 74kg freestyle wrestler, for which he tested positive.

Adding that he should be given a chance to represent India in Rio Olympics, he said, “I hope this will be sorted out soon. I have written to federation, I want justice”. Wretling Federation of India also ruled out replacement of the wrestler for Rio Olympics. If he would have doped then he would have not gone to Spain, said WFI president Brij Bhushan Saran. Federation feels that injustice has been done with Narsingh, hope the committee does justice, Bhushan said.

With Narsingh Yadav’s roommate Sandeep Yadav also testing positive for the same banned substance, WFI said that it strengthens the conspiracy theory and indicates at a clear case of sabotage. Narsingh, who was picked ahead Sushil Kumar to represent India at the Rio Games in 74kg Freestyle category, has been handed provisional suspension and virtually ruled out of next month’s Olympics.
