Sindhu had to take another test to get clean. So she was insane until those results came. Only after the second test turned negative was Sindhu also allowed to enter the Games Village, The The Bharat Express News reported. The Indian team had left Hyderabad for Birmingham on Monday 25 July.
According to Birmingham sources, some ‘immutability’ has been discovered and so she has been placed under observation. She was part of the 10-man badminton squad that left Hyderabad in the early morning of July 25.
On Thursday night, Sindhu and India hockey team captain Manpreet Singh was named as India’s flag bearer for the ceremony to be held on Thursday.
