NEW DELHI: Lok Sabha members today joined the row over wrestler Narsingh Yadav failing a drug test, with one of them seeking a CBI probe, prompting Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs S S Ahluwalia to assure the House that he would ask the government to make a statement on the issue.

Ranjeet Ranjan (Cong) raised the issue in the Zero Hour and sought a CBI inquiry into the matter while referring to the allegations that brother of another international player had a role in spiking Yadav's food and drink intake.

"Whether he (Yadav) has been fixed or not we do not know. There should be a CBI inquiry and the guilty must be given most stringent punishment. It is a heinous crime," she said.

As many other members joined her and sought the government's response, Ahluwalia said he will convey their sentiments to the government and seek an official response.

He noted that the matter was raised in the Question Hour too.
