Govt finalising law to punish “real sources of doping” in 3-6 months: NADA DG

NEW DELHI: The Government is working on finalising a law to punish the “real sources of doping” in sports in the next three to six months, National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) Director General Navin Agarwal said on Monday.
His statement came when the Indian Olympic Association President Narinder Batra spoke about the need of “some kind of law” to penalise the people behind doping by athletes during a national webinar on ‘anti-doping, nutritional and therapeutical requirements in sports’.
“The sports secretary has said the law is being worked out. It will be finalised in three to six months so that not only the athletes but the entire and the real sources of this menace are traced and punished,” Agarwal said without elaborating. (AGENCIES)
