Indian boxing's image continued to take a massive beating with the Sports Authority of India today expelling Olympic medallist Vijender Singh's room mate Ram Singh from the national camp here after he confessed to consuming drugs.
Executive Director of NIS LS Ranawat confirmed Ram Singh's expulsion here after his questioning by the Punjab Police in connection with a case of drug haul in Fatehgarh Sahab district.
"Ram will be relieved from the camp here from tomorrow," said Ranawat adding that Vijender would continue to remain in the camp.
The official communication regarding Ram's expulsion from the camp has not yet been received but information for his expulsion has been received telephonically, he added.Asked about Ram Singh's presence in the national camp he said initially he was not in the list and was inducted onlyafter the recommendation of Vijender.
Ram is being summoned daily for questioning by the Fatehgarh Sahab Police following the arrest of two persons with 26 kg of heroin from a flat in Zirakpur area of Mohali district.
An SUV registered in the name of Vijender's wife, Archana, was recovered by the police from near the flat where an NRI Anup Singh Kahlon and his driver were arrested. Four persons were arrested later taking the number of those arrested to six.
Ram, during interrogation yesterday, had claimed that the duo "consumed small quantities of drug" on a few occasions, which was given to them by Kahlon, who attempted suicide under police custody yesterday.
