Narsingh’s family alleges conspiracy, stage sit-in

Lucknow, July 27 (IANS) Villagers of wrestler Narsingh Yadav, who tested positive in a dope test and was subsequently disqualified for the Rio Olympics, have come out in support of the “son of the soil”, after his family alleged a conspiracy.

Hundreds of people in Ajgara village of Varanasi have started a demonstration in development block Sholapur demanding a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the whole issue.

Narsingh’s father Pancham Yadav and mother Bhoolna Devi said their son, a free style wrestler in 74 kg category, was innocent and did not even consume tea, forget taking steroids to boost up his energy levels.

The family alleged that wrestler Satpal and Sushil Yadav have conspired to get his son out of the Olympics.

Narsingh’s family said they will hold a rally and demonstrate outside Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s office in Varanasi, in case justice was not served to their son. Modi is Lok Sabha MP from Varanasi.

Several village heads, local sportspersons and politicians have lend their support to the agitation, saying Narsingh had a fairly clean record so far and if the family alleged a conspiracy there should be a fair probe into the whole matter.
