“Hence, the prayer of the accused/applicant in the present application is not maintainable. Accordingly, the present application is hereby dismissed,” the order said.
Advocate Pradeep Rana, appearing for Kumar, while arguing for the application said, “The future carrier of accused/ applicant in wrestling directly depends on his physical strength and physique, without which he cannot sustain and sought permission to allow special foods and supplements to the accused, which contain protein, Omega-3 capsules, jointment capsules, Pre-workout C4, Hyde, Multivitamin GNC, Exercises Bands among other things.”
