'Malleswari used drugs'

“In the 2004 Olympics she left without taking her lift and she arrived in Delhi five-six hours after the weightlifting competition. It meant she had planned to skip it. Had she taken her lift she would have won a medal and would have been caught for doping as all medal winners will have to give samples,” he said.

“For the sake of allegations I can also make allegations. I remember Malleswari skipping another dope test when WADA people came to India.

She did not turn up to give a sample and one lifter Krishna Kumari did,” he added.  Malhotra also maintained that he never “misbehaved” with women weightlifters.
