Nada panel leaves Indian wrestler Narsingh waiting,Verdict deferred to Monday

The suspense over Narsingh Yadav's participation in the 2016 Rio Olympics continued on Saturday as the National Anti-Doping Agency's (Nada) decided to defer its decision to Monday.

A verdict was expected today but it got delayed because the Panel is waiting for all docs and records.

The final word on Narsingh Yadav's fate will be decided on Monday, whether he can still make it to the Rio Olympics or be replaced by Parveen Rana.

While addressing the media, Director General NADA Naveen Aggarwal said,'The reason for marathon meeting and the delay in declaring the verdict as a lot of documents needed to be studied and the arguments have been lengthy. We are hopeful that justice will be done'.

It is to be noticed that this is a prevalent norm which comes under the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) rules that if some wrestler found guilty of doping, he could serve a 4-year ban.

Moreover, on 25 June, Narsingh Yadav tested positive for banned substance metadienone during a test conducted by NADA.

Further again he caught himself into trouble when on Wednesday it was announced that a second test conducted on July 5 has also returned a positive result.

Meanwhile, Narsingh protested and claiming conspiratorial forces had spiked his food/water (or some other intake), making the situation even more bizarre.
