Para athlete Hitesh Sachdeva has been banned from competing in the London Paralympics after being caught for doping

The ‘A’ sample of Sachdeva, a totally blind Uttar Pradesh shot putter, was found to contain banned steroid nandrolone. 

The test was done here last week. He has been provisionally suspended and will not take part in London Paralympic Games to be held from August 29 to September 9.

“We have got the ‘A’ sample result from the NADA and it is found to contain 15ml of nandrolone,” UP Paralympics Association Secretary Nitin Arya said.
