Ibrar hearing adjourned

Special Correspondent


Ibrar had tested positive for stanozolol


NEW DELHI: The hearing in the anti-doping rule violation case relating to the appeal by athlete Mohammad Ibrar was adjourned on Thursday with the Anti-Doping Appeal panel seeking further clarification on his provisional suspension in order to decide on his plea to alter the commencement date of his suspension.

Ibrar, South Asian Games champion in long jump in 2010, had tested positive for steroid stanozolol in an out-of-competition test in March last year.

He was suspended for two years from February 4 this year, the date of the disciplinary panel's decision.

Ibrar's counsel D. K. Sharma pleaded on Thursday that the commencement of his suspension be backdated to sample collection date (March 23, 2010) as he had not been able to compete since then and would effectively be losing almost three years instead of two.

The appeal panel, headed by retired High Court Judge C.K. Mahajan, sought more information about Ibrar's status after sample collection and immediately after intimation of his ‘positive' test.

The federation would be asked to submit these details.

The fact remained; there was no provisional suspension in the case of the Indian Air Force long jumper.

The case of Sharadha Narayana, also listed for the day, did not come up. The Tamil Nadu sprinter had sought postponement on an appeal filed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) against her exoneration in a steroid violation case.

Justice Mahajan contended that WADA's two appeals in the case, one with his panel and the other with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), Lausanne, were together not maintainable. WADA should be advised to withdraw its appeal with the CAS for him to entertain its appeal with the Indian panel, he said.

The WADA appeal with the CAS had been stayed and the WADA had argued, in a similar case earlier, that this was a procedure it adopted in such cases with the CAS appeal being stayed during the pendency of an appeal at the National level.
