In a massive drug haul, the police have recovered heroin worth Rs 130 crore from a flat in Zirakpur, Mohali. The police has alleged that boxer Vijender Singh's wife's car was found outside the Zirakpur flat and 10 kilograms of heroin was also recovered from another car.
But it is not confirmed if it was from the boxer's wife's car. Police said that one person arrested on March 3, Anup Singh Kahlon, is linked to Vijender Singh and another boxer Ram Singh.
The accused has alleged that he supplied small amounts of heroin to Vijender and Ram. Sources told CNN-IBN that they will be calling in the boxers for questioning. SSP Fatehgarh Sahab Hardyal Mann Singh says the investigations are on. "Nothing can be ruled out and we are probling the links between the accused and the boxers."
Sources also added that the accused is allegedly part of a bigger international drug peddling racket. Reportedly Kahlon is a truck driver in Canada and is part of a drug network in Punjab.
Meanwhile, Vijender's coach Gurbaksh Sandhu has expressed shock at the news.
Vijender won a bronze medal at 2006 Asian Games in Doha, a bronze at 2008 Beijing Olympics and is the first Indian boxer to win an Olympic medal. The boxer was also honoured with Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award and was 2009 top-ranked boxer in middle-weight category.
