Chandigarh: Ram Singh, a national-level boxer and friend of Olympic medallist Vijender Singh, has been expelled from Patiala's National Institute of Sports after he admitted to taking drugs.
Punjab Police sources say investigations indicate that boxer Vijender Singh could have also experimented with drugs which he allegedly bought with Ram Singh from drug dealer Anup Singh Kahlon, who was arrested on March 3 in a major drug bust.
The police say though Vijender will be questioned soon, they do not believe that he knew much about the international smuggling ring that the arrested dealer was allegedly a part of.
Vijender denied ever using drugs and said he had no links with the drug dealer. The boxer is currently in Mumbai.
