Sanjita Chanu’s B sample returns positive
NEW DELHI: Fighting a dope taint, weightlifter Sanjita Chanu’s troubles mounted Thursday with her ‘B’ sample also returning positive but the defiant Commonwealth Games gold-medallist will fight her case before the international body’s hearing panel.
Chanu has decided to present her case before the hearing panel of the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) in Hungary. If Sanjita fails to prove her innocence before the IWF hearing panel, she faces a maximum punishment of four years, as stipulated for a first-time offender. “The B sample test was sent to Sanjita on September 11 and we will present our case before the IWF hearing panel in Budapest.” Sanjita’s brother Bijen said.
