Even before the opening ceremony took place, they were dealt with a big blow as India's boxing team doctor Amol Patil has been reprimanded for breaching the no-needle policy that is in place for the upcoming Games.

Organisers had earlier ruled that it wasn't an anti-doping violation.

Games Corporation chairman Peter Beattie said the situation was "very unhelpful" with just two days to go until Wednesday's opening ceremony.

In case you didn't know.

A statement from the Commonwealth Games Federation read: "The chief executive officer of the Commonwealth Games Federation has been made aware through media representatives of purported allegations, however there has been no reporting to the CGF through the established village processes".

An investigation was launched into the matter following the discovery.

Indian team officials were warned at the 2014 Glasgow Games about the use of needles and their correct disposal after syringes were found where their wrestlers and a para-athlete were staying.

The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) was summoned to appear before the Commonwealth Medical Commission to answer questions surrounding the needles.

Games chief executive David Grevemberg said he had "grave concern" about the situation, which follows a number of abuse scandals in sport including the jail term of up to 175 years handed to U.S. gymnastics coach Larry Nassar in January.

"I'm confident that our boxers haven't taken anything", Mr Nieva told Australia's 7 News.

"These needles have been brought in and there was no approval for them to be there". But thankfully, none of the results seemed indicative towards doping.

The CGF "no needle policy" is such that forbids an athlete to get injections 'without strong medical support.' However, there is a soft corner when an athlete has a prescribed medication or nutritional supplements under the supervision of a medical practitioner.

Patil provided information to the medical commission before noon the day after the needles were discovered, meaning he avoided any sanctions for a separate breach of the regulations. The investigation has proved effective and has cleared India to have committed any doping activity.

CGF CEO David Grevemberg, in a press conference held on April 2, assured that the Federation is looking into the matter, and is in talks with the concerned Games Association.
