AIFF sack India team doctor


Punith Kenchappa Giriyappa has been named as the doctor for the India under-23 team for the AFC U-23 Championship 2018 Qualifiers in Qatar from July 19.

“Punith shall join the Indian AFC U-23 contingent in Doha with immediate effect. He was part of the medical team for the 2017 edition of the Indian Premier League in Bengaluru and has also been a part of the medical team for the Pro Kabbadi League in Bengaluru in 2016,” an AIFF release said.

The NADA panel had ruled that the ingestion of terbutaline (Beta-2 Agonist) by Paul was not intentional. Paul had contended that he was administered the banned substance by the team doctor who submitted in writing to the panel that he had prescribed a medicine that contained a banned substance. NADA in its observation had directed AIFF to take strict action against the doctor. “AIFF is committed to strictly adhering to all the relevant anti-doping guidelines,” AIFF said.
