Haryana police had recently warned of taking action against Vijender if he failed to seek permission from the state government for turning professional. The boxer was made DSP by Haryana government after winning bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Vijender is currently on probation and yet to complete his training. Being a government employee, Vijender cannot accept another employment and cannot accept remuneration from any other source without the government's permission.
