India were cleared of doping but slapped with a “strong written reprimand” on Tuesday after syringes were found in the Commonwealth Games athletes village. The Games’ Federation Court said the doctor of India’s boxing team injected an unwell fighter with vitamins, but breached rules on the use of syringes. Under Games rules, teams need permission to use syringes and all needles must be central, secured location with access restricted to authorised medical personnel. (Video: SNTV).
