New Delhi: The doping mess that has engulfed Indian athletics took a bloody turn on Wednesday when former medical officer at the National Institute of Sports, Dr. Sajib Nandi was allegedly beaten and abused by security guards at the training facility, forcing Sports Minister Ajay Maken to assure that he will personally meet the doctor.
Dr. Nandi was scheduled to meet Justice Mukul Mudgal, who is heading the fact finding committee looking into the recent doping scandal, inside the premises of the campus. He however, was stopped and was beaten up on demanding an entry.
"I have some documents that would aid the investigations but I was told that orders were not to let me in. I was then held by my hand and pushed away," he told the press.
