In a communication sent to the director general of NADA, the ministry said reports have appeared in the media regarding alleged consumption of heroin by the pugilist. “Such reports in respect of a sporting icon are disturbing and may have a debilitating influence on other sportspersons.
It has, therefore, been considered necessary that NADA gets a test carried out on Shri Vijender Singh. The communication has asked NADA to carry out the test immediately,” said a statement.
