Union Sports Minister Vijay Goel, while taking note of reports that doctors without requisite qualifications were sent to the Rio Olympics, said on Saturday the government will seek complete details before sending anyone to such events in future.
"We will ask the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) to submit resumes, expertise of contingents and other details of the people accompanying Indian athletes. We will examine whether the person fulfils the criteria before permitting them for events like the Olympics," Goel told a leading news channel.
He said the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is probing two doctors, Pawan Deep Singh and RS Negi, who were allegedly sent to the 2016 Rio Olympics with the 118-member Indian contingent without having the required qualifications.
The CBI has already registered a preliminary inquiry against Singh and Negi.
