During a national-level competition last month, four Indian athletes have tested positive for banned substances.
An Indian newspaper named Rohit Kumar (javelin), Kirpal Singh (discus), and Harvinder Daggar (hammer) for testing positive for anabolic steroids and Anshu Rai (discus) for a stimulant.
India’s National Anti-Doping Agency confirmed four athletes tested positive at the Federation Cup in the northern city of Patiala from April 21-23 but refused to name the athletes pending B sample tests.
It confirmed three athletes who tested positive for anabolic steroids were given provisional suspensions but there had been no decision on the fourth athlete.
The fourth athlete would face the hearing panel of NADA.
