Fatehgarh Sahib: Boxer Ram Singh, who is under detention in the multi-million dollar drug racket, has said that he and Olympics bronze medallist boxer Vijender Singh had tried drugs, but just for the sake of "adventure".
He has also admitted that he and Vijender Singh were in constant touch with drug smuggler Anoop Singh Kahlon, who was arrested March 7, police said.
"We had taken very small quantity of drugs, less than two gm each. But we are not habitual takers of drugs and had tried it just for adventure. We did not intend to improve our stamina or performance by taking it," Ram Singh told IANS over phone.
The police had recovered 26 kg heroin, worth Rs.130 crore in the international market, from the possession of Kahlon and arrested him Thursday. He had reportedly told the police that Vijender Singh and Ram Singh were his "clients".
"Vijender was in touch with some Mumbai celebrities, who were regular in rave parties and took drugs. Therefore we also tried it. However, we did not pay anything to Kahlon for drugs," Ram Singh said.
