New Delhi: World’s number one ranked boxer Vijender Singh has landed in a soup after the issue of his controversial card for the reception party drew flak. The national emblem was reportedly printed on the reception card of Singh.

Annoyed over the issue, Delhi lawyer Abhishek Kadyan in his complaint to the Superintendent of Police (SP) has demanded a legal action against the champion boxer. Taking a serious note of the issue, SP Bhiwani has instructed a DSP rank official to probe the charges.

According to SP Bhiwani, “The complaint has been made through an E-mail, and a DSP has been instructed to probe the charges.” He claimed that if required further action will be initiated after the probe report is handed over to him.

The marriage of Singh was solemnised with Delhi girl Archana in a function in the national capital on May 18. About a week before the marriage, family members of Singh started the distribution of reception cards. The reception function was held in Singh’s native Kulawas village.

The invitation cards distributed in Bhiwani on behalf of Vijender carried the national emblem on them which amounts to flouting of rules.

It has been made clear in the complaint made to the SP and Commissioner that under the State Emblem Act 2005, the national emblem cannot be used for personal works.

Singh himself is a DSP in state police. The complaint clarifies that the use of national emblem can be either in the government seal or by person holding constitutional post.

It was also mentioned in the complaint that about 20 domestic LPG cylinders of Hindustan Petroleum and Indane were used in cooking the feast in the reception of Vijender while there is an acute shortage of gas cylinders.

When asked about the issue, Bhiwani District Food Supplies Controller Dilbag Singh said the use of domestic LPG cylinders in the wedding is banned.
