The chief minister was asked to comment on the Olympic medallist's name cropping up in connection with the Rs. 130 crore heroin haul in Punjab's Zirakpur recently.

Hooda told reporters, "I don't think that Vijender would have such involvement, but the law would take its own course."

The 27-year-old Vijender, a DSP with Haryana Police, has steadfastly denied involvement in the scandal

Serving as a head constable with Punjab Police, Ram Singh, a former national championship medallist in the super heavyweight category and Vijender's sparring partner, told reporters in Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab, that he and Vijender experimented with drugs on a few occasions.
