This comes just a day before National Anti-Doping Agency’s (NADA) second hearing in suspended wrestler’s dope case.

With NADA panel all set to meet tomorrow, this could well turn the tide in favour of the tainted wrestler. Narsingh, who was handed suspension after testing positive for steroid methandienone, was dropped from the Indian contingent that left for Rio a few days back.
The wrestler was selected on a quota basis for the Rio Olympics despite facing opposition from Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar. However, Sushil recently came in support of Narsingh.
