India under scanner as Commonwealth Games Federation begins probe on syringe controversy

India has sent 219 athletes to CWG 2018.

The Commonwealth Games Federation said it was aware of the allegations and trusted police to investigate.

The games village has 1252 permanent dwellings: 1170 one and two bedroom apartments and 82 three bedroom townhouses at Southport, Gold Coast.

An unnamed female athlete from the East African nation has accused the country's chef de mission, Kaysee Teeroovengadum, of inappropriate sexual behaviour.

And after revealing he had been selected for Team England, he posted on Instagram: "So proud to be selected to represent Team England at the Commonwealth Games in Australia".

Grevemberg said the CGF was in talks with the concerned Commonwealth Games Association amid spiralling speculation that Indian boxers are the ones under the scanner in this case.

Federation chief executive David Grevemberg would not reveal the nation involved but said their officials had been summoned to a meeting with the medical commission this afternoon.




The court ruled Dr Patil had breached those protocols by leaving the needles unattended and that the needles in question were not disposed of until after he had made two trips to the village's clinic.

What substance, if any, had been in the syringes remains unclear.

He said, 'The doctors of the Indian team had given syringe to the Medical Commission, who destroyed them. "The atmosphere is relaxed and you meet so many different athletes, from different sports". "It does not belong to us".

In another incident, ace shuttler Saina Nehwal's father Harvir Singh Nehwal, who has travelled along with her as an official of the badminton contingent, was not granted permission to enter the Games Village.

Apart from shouldering India's solid hope of a gold medal in the single's category in badminton, Sindhu has also been honored with the role of the flag bearer of the Indian contingent in the opening ceremony of the Games.

However, the suspension will be reviewed after the opening ceremony on Wednesday.

The CGF has promised a zero tolerance approach to doping and says any athletes caught cheating will be thrown out of the Games.
