In September 2021 the India National Anti-Doping Agency (INADA) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the weightlifter Jaspreet Singh after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substances Metandienone and Methyltestosterone.
After notification a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete failed to respond to the communcations, nor attended the hearing of the Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel of India (ADDPI) and a decision was rendered in absentia of the Athlete.
The Panel finds that the presence of prohibited susbstances has been established in the Athlete's sample and accordingly that he committed an anti-doping rule violation. Because the Athlete didn't respond he failed to demonstrate that the violation was not intentional nor how the substance had entered his system.
Therefore the ADDPI decides on 20 April 2021 to impose a 4 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting on the date of the the provisional suspension, i.e. on 9 September 2021.
