Sangwan to get B sample tested?


Delhi pacer Pradeep Sangwan needs to return to India soon to get his B sample tested at a Wada-accredited lab in the capital.
Sangwan, who tested positive for a banned substance during the sixth edition of the IPL, is in the United Kingdom for a shoulder injury and needs to exercise the B sample option within a month’s time from the notification of the first report.
“The option of B sample screening needs to be exercised by the athlete within a month of receiving a notification of the A sample findings, communicated to him by the testing authority,” Dr Danish Zaheer, an expert in anti-doping laws, said from Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.
“Sangwan’s surgery was performed last Monday and he has to see the surgeon again on Tuesday and thereafter he will decide on his return trip to India,” a source close to Sangwan told this paper on Sunday.
Sangwan’s family is believed to have received two letters from the Indian cricket board. The first letter was received when the player was yet to leave for the UK. The second one, however, was delivered in his absence.
“His father, Jaibir Sangwan, is in touch with him and maintains that the drug, the effects of which were not known to his son, was given to him by a local chemist,” the source added.
“The BCCI has to arrange a mutually agreed date for testing of the B sample as soon as possible after receiving a written request from Sangwan, at the same laboratory where the A sample was screened.”
The expenses for the laboratory testings for the B sample will be borne by the player himself.
According to the source, Sangwan was administered a corticosteroid injection during the IPL for shoulder inflammation and it may be a possibility that the traces of the same may have been found in his urine sample. But Sangwan needed to submit a Therapeutic Use Exemption in that case, according to the expert.
“If he was injected with a corticosteroid injection for his shoulder injury during the IPL, and if he was sampled within days after that injection, there is a possibility that the traces of the corticosteroid injection used for the treatment of his inflamed shoulder might have appeared in his urine,” said Zaheer.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
