New Delhi: Stunned by allegations that he has links with a drug dealer caught by the Punjab Police, star Indian boxer Vijender Singh on Friday said the "ridiculous charges" would be proved wrong in investigations.

The former world number one, who gave India its first Olympic medal in boxing in 2008, said he was shocked to hear his name crop up after his wife's car was found outside a flat in Zirakpur from where 26kg of heroin worth Rs 130 crore was recovered.

"I am shocked. I am in Mumbai right now for work. My friends dropped me at the airport in my wife's car. I don't know how it reached outside that Zirakpur flat," Vijender, an Asian Games gold-medallist, told PTI over phone.
