New Delhi :

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday met Wrestler Narsingh Yadav and asked him to participate in the Olympics without any tension and win laurels for the country. 

Narsingh, looking relieved after being exonerated of doping charges by the National Anti-doping Agency (NADA), said after meeting the prime minister: "I believe I will definitely go for Rio Olympics, will win medal for my country." 

He also said: "The PM gave me his blessings and said there will be no injustice to me." 

Paving the way for Narsingh's participation in Rio Games, the NADA on Monday concluded that the wrestler was a victim of sabotage and handed him a clean chit. 

"This has been the toughest fight of my life. I want to forget the entire episode now and solely focus on winning a medal at the Olympics," Narsingh said after NADA DG Naveen Agarwal put an end to the suspense on the wrestler's fate by exonerating him on Monday. 

"Last 15 days have been mentally very very tough for me and my family. But I always believed that I would get justice as I knew that I was on the right side and did not do anything wrong. I have never ever taken anything. I was confident of getting justice. 

"That is the reason why I always kept practising and never left my training," he added. The 26-year-old, however, said that anybody behind the sabotage should be punished.
