Santhi Soundarajan, one time Asian Games silver medalist was found working as a daily labourer in a brick kiln in Tamil Nadu.

Santhi was stripped of her women's 800 metres Asian games silver medal after failing a gender test in 2008.

The former athlete, who earns Rs 200 per day, has reportedly been forced to work as a labourer after she was banned by the Athletics Federation of India.
