Delhi HC: Narsingh Yadav doping allegation  seeks speedy completion

On Monday, Suspended Indian wrestler Narsingh Yadav moved the Delhi High Court, seeking a time-bound completion of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the supposed case of doping against him before the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016. 

The Indian wrestler has been facing doping charges after being tested positive for methandienone following two anti-doping tests conducted by the National Anti Doping Authority (NADA) on June 25 and July 5 ahead of the Rio Olympics.

While, hearing Yadav's plea, the Delhi High Court came down a lot on the CBI and squashed the agency for its slow investigation into the allegations against the grappler. The court further warned the central probe agency that it would pass the order in the matter if the CBI counsel fails to get required instructions from the concerned officers in the agency.

Delhi High Court telling the CBI Counsel that, "It has been more than two years. What are doing? Get instructions from the concerned officer, otherwise, we will pass the order,". 

In his defence, the grappler had said that the tests came positive due to damage carried out by a junior wrestler and a member of Sushil Kumar's associates by mixing prohibited substance in his energy drink on either June 23 or 24.
