A top source in the SAI said that Ram would no longer be a part of the national camp until his name was cleared of all charges. Ram was included in the camp on the request of Vijender. The official, however, added that Vijender would continue to remain in the camp.

The official communication regarding Ram's expulsion from the camp will be forwarded to the NIS authorities on Monday.
