Double Asian Games silver medallist Dutee Chand who has been handed a four-year-ban for failing dope tests has urged the Odisha government and the Centre for help so that she can represent India in various competitions. The National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) has been banned for four years for failing two out-of-competition dope tests for a banned substance in December last year. "I received the news yesterday morning that I lost the case that I had challenged and received a four-year ban. I was very sad and shocked after the decision...I have given several doping tests earlier and this has never happened...I request the state government, central government and NADA to help so that I can represent India in various competitions...I have not committed any wrongdoing," Dutee Chand told ANI.
