Not connected to drug bust, says Vijender Singh

Olympic bronze medallist Vijender Singh has denied involvement in a massive heroin bust, valued at Rs 130 crore.

CNN-IBN reported that boxer Vijender Singh’s wife’s car was found outside the apartment at the time of the drug bust. Police said that 10kg of heroin had been found in a car but it is not clear if the car mentioned belongs to the boxers wife.



However Singh said that nothing had been found in his car, and denied any involvement in the scandal. "All allegations against me in connection with the Heroin racket baseless. Nothing was found in my car", he said.

Police also arrested a man named Anup Singh Kahlon in connection with the drug bust, which they believe is linked to a massive international smuggling operation. CNN-IBN said that the man is linked to Vijender Singh and another boxer Ram Singh.

“Nothing can be ruled out and we are probling the links between the accused and the boxers”, said SSP Fatehgarh Sahab Hardyal Mann Singh to the channel.

However Singh also denied any connection to Kahlon.
