AgencyNew Delhi: The World Anti-Doping Agency has suspended the accreditation of India’s National Dope Testing Laboratory for six months in a massive blow to the country’s anti-doping programme, prompting a surprised Sports Ministry to brace up for an appeal. The lab, which got WADA accreditation in 2008, is no longer authorised to carry out testing of the samples as the suspension is effective from August 20. The development is a huge setback for India with less than a year left for the Tokyo Olympics. The National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) can still collect samples (blood and urine) but will have to get them tested by a WADA-accredited laboratory outside India.
