Sanjita had tested positive for an anabolic steroid, Drostanolone Metabolite, during the in-competition testing at the National Games in Gujarat in September-October last year. Drostanolone Metabolite is on the prohibited list of the World Anti-doping Agency (WADA).

Indian Weightlifting Federation (IWF) president, Sahdev Yadav confirmed the ban imposed on Sanjita. He said,

“Yes, she has been handed a four-year ban by NADA.”

This is a big blow for Sanjita, who will be dismissed from the National Games silver medal as a result of the positive test.

The Indian weightlifter had won gold in 48kg ahead of Mirabai Chanu at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. At the 2018 edition in Gold Coast, Sanjita was crowned champion in the 53kg category.
