A few days after Arjuna Awardee footballer Subrata Paul was caught for doping, Indian weightlifter Sushila Panwar has also failed the dope test. Panwar’s `A` sample was found positive for a banned substance and now the Indian Weightlifting Federation has suspended her provisionally.
The National Anti-Doping agency (NADA) conducted her dope test on March 25 in Patiala. Last week, Subrata Paul had failed a dope test conducted by the NADA in Mumbai when the Indian men’s football team were going to Cambodia for a friendly match in February.
His ‘A’ Sample was tested positive for a banned substance ‘Terbutaline’.
