NEW DELHI, April 28: Just days after footballer Subrata Paul tested positive for a banned substance, weightlifter Sushila Panwar has failed a dope test and she has been placed under provisional suspension.
After Panwar�s �A� sample was found positive, the Indian Weightlifting Federation (IWF) suspended her provisionally.
The National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) conducted dope tests on all the national campers on March 25 in Patiala.
�Forty two weightlifters were tested and only Sushila�s sample was found to be positive,� said IWF Secretary Sahdev Yadav.
Panwar came to the limelight when she bagged a gold medal in the +75kg category at the 12th South Asian Games in Guwahati last year. � PTI
