Club demands fair probe into Sanjita Chanu case
IMPHAL, 3rd June:
Claiming that there is confusion in the urine sample number of weightlifter Khumukcham Sanjita Chanu as mentioned by International Weightlifting Federation, Thongju Chigonglei Makhong Development Club (TCMDC) has demanded the authority concerned to conduct fair probe so as to bring out the truth in the dope test failure of Sanjita. Issuing a statement in this regard, TCMDC pointed out that the laboratory sample number of Sanjita is 1599000 and the sample which is claimed to be positive in the dope test is 1599176. As such, it appears to be an act of defamation and suppression of a sportsperson of Manipur which is considered to be the powerhouse of sports in India. Authority concerned, Union YAS minister in particular, should conduct a probe and find out the truth at the earliest so as to save the career of Sanjita and to avoid discouragement of young athletes of the nation, the club demanded.
