Wrestler Bajrang Punia has accused the anti-doping agency of using expired equipment to conduct doping tests – Magazine Creations

India’s 2020 Tokyo Olympics bronze medalist, wrestler Bajrang Punia, on December 13 alleged that the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) was using expired and outdated equipment while conducting doping tests on athletes.

In a video on social media, Poonia showed that NADA officials visited him for a test but the equipment was past its expiry date. Apart from this, he also showed the syringes and vials that the officials were carrying and asked the authorities to investigate the matter.

“This is an important video that we all need to watch and think about how we can trust the system if procedures are not followed,” Punia wrote on “Young people. Please be informed of your rights and procedures regarding doping. We urge the relevant authorities to take the necessary measures and ask athletes to remain alert and exercise utmost caution during such procedures.”

Meanwhile, a Delhi court granted bail to Punia in a criminal defamation case filed by coach Naresh Dahiya. The latter accused Poonia of tarnishing his image by making a statement during the protest against union president Brij Bhushan Charan Singh.
