Talking to mediapersons in Jhajjar, Hooda said law should be allowed to take its own course.

Vijender Singh's name has cropped up in a 26-kg heroin drug seizure case, involving NRI Anoop Singh Kahlon and Vijender's NIS-Patiala roommate and friend Ram Singh 'Ruby'. Ruby had on Saturday claimed that he and Vijender had tried heroin, procured from Kahlon for free, on a couple of occasions.

The claims have been rubbished by 27-year-old Vijender, who is a deputy superintendent in Haryana police.
