INDIAN SPORTS & DOPING: More Indian athletes in doping scandal!
Have you read, “Mayhem of the Miserables!” available @

July 1, 2011 / Reuters, New Delhi / DC.

A second member of the Indian women's 4x400 metres Asian and Commonwealth Games winning team has failed a dope test, the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) said on Thursday.
A day after gold-medallist Mandeep Kaur was banned, teammate Sini Jose also tested positive for the same banned anabolic steroid methandienone, AFI director ML Dogra said.
Juana Murmu and Tiana Mary Thomas, who are also 400m runners, shot putter Sonia and long jumper Hari Krishna Muralidharan also returned positive results for the same drug.
Murmu had failed the dope test conducted by the world governing body of athletics (IAAF) at a training camp in India last month.
India's medal prospects in the London Olympics will be severely dented in the women's 400 metres relay as two of the four runners from the triumphant Asian Games team will be ruled out.

Why they indulge in such silly acts as anyway they would be subjected to the doping tests and caught?

Sportspersons who were caught of doping would be punished with suspension but, shouldn't they also be prosecuted under THE NARCOTIC DRUGS AND PSYCHOTROPIC SUBSTANCES ACT, 1985?

Coaches and the doctors who prescribed such drugs and / or drug dealers who supplied them such banned drugs too should be prosecuted under the above Law!
