Narsingh Yadav’s Father Stages Protest Demands High-Level


Varanasi: The father of wrestler Narsingh Yadav and several of his supporters on Saturday staged a protest in front of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s parliamentary office in Varanasi at Ravindrapuri, demanding a high-level inquiry into the doping scandal.

Pancham Yadav, father of the 26-year-old wrestler who tested positive in two dope tests following which his hopes of participating in Rio Olympics faded away, claimed that his son was “innocent” and had fallen a victim to a conspiracy hatched by the rivals to oust him from the games.

People from their native village, Neema, and its adjoining villages had gathered in front of the office demanding a high-level inquiry. Local politicans also joined the protesters. Meanwhile, Narsingh is waiting for the NADA verdict, which will decide his Rio Olympics fate.
