SAI director general Jiji Thomson said the Beijing Olympics bronze medallist can join the camp any time as he has got a clearance from the National Anti-doping Agency (NADA).
“He has been given a clean chit by NADA and therefore we absolutely have no issues with him. He is currently on leave but can join the camp any day he wants,” said Thomson as he undertook his maiden visit at the National Institute of Sport, in Patiala yesterday to supervise the working of the institute.
Vijender was named in a drug scandal after his car was found near a flat where police recovered 26 kg of heroin in Shivalik Vihar in Zirakpur on March 7.
