The usual thing about Anita testing positive is the extended impede in announcing the result of her urine sample. It was collected by the NADA DCO’s, 19 months ago while the result was received less than a month back from Qatar’s Doha Laboratory.

Her level of testosterone limits crossed the prescribed threshold. NADA decided to get her sample tested scientifically and now has resumed its sample collection, recently testing Bajirang Punia, Vinesh Phogat, Pooja Dhanda, Narsingh Yadav among others.
