Pargat Singh, director, sports, Punjab, has said that players who fail to clear dope tests would not be given any share of the prize money for winners and runners-up of the Kabaddi World Cup.

He stated that in the finals, the National Anti-Doping Association (NADA) team would take blood samples, not swab samples, of players.

Meanwhile, with the aim of ensuing dope-free finals here on Sunday, NADA has imported special dope-testing kits from the UK.

Dr Munish Chander, NADA director, said the tests would be conducted during half-time or just after the finals in men’s and women’s categories.

He said none of the female players had tested positive so far, even as reports of 15 players were awaited.
