Narsingh Yadav: Culpable or not? 


The entire sorry episode of Narsingh Yadav’s failed dope test and his subsequent disqualification  this year’s Rio Olympics reads like a really bad Dick Francis thriller . 

Yadav claims that he is the victim of a conspiracy, that his food and supplements were spiked by mischievous elements. An investigation by India Today appears to bear out his version. There are reports of an intruder mixing an unidentified  white, powdery substance in his food portions. 

Suspicion is rife given that his roommate Sandeep Tulsi Yadav  too has tested positive for steroids. Were they made patsies by unscrupulous persons? 

Yadav is reportedly shattered by the turn of events and is said to have contemplated killing himself. 

It all seems tragically anti-climactic given the court  drama pursuant to the non-selection of Sushil Kumar and Yadav’s ‘meritorious‘   showing. 

Accusations and counter-accusations will continue to fly over the next few days—at least,  until Indian athletes reach Rio. 

Is Yadav being victimised by powerful parties within the SAI?  Or is he simply unwilling to admit any  wrongdoing? 

Surely,  the Indian public deserves to know.
