New Delhi, August 10: Even after being cleared of doping charges, Indian weightlifter Monika Devi, who was left out of the Beijing Olympics contingent, tonight said she is ready to undergo any test to prove her innocence.

"I am ready to undergo any test, including the 'B' samples," Monika, who was stopped from flying to Beijing on August 6, told reporters here. The 'B' sample test is an alternative one to confirm the findings of the first examination for consumption of banned substances.

The Manipuri lifter also alleged that the Sports Authority of India (SAI) and Indian Olympic Association (IOA) manipulated with her urine samples and declared her as having failed the dope test.

The lifter, who was yesterday cleared of dope charges by the SAI, also welcomed Manipur Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh's decision to push for a CBI probe into the whole episode.

The Chief Minister earlier said the state government would move the centre to push for a CBI inquiry to "book the main culprits".
