Indian race walker K T Irfan and triple jumper V Rakesh Babu were on Friday ordered to return home from the Games and a strong reprimand issued to the Indian officials here after the duo was found guilty of breaching the Commonwealth Games strict no needle policy. A statement said testimony from an Australia Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) investigator was “credible,” and cast doubt on comments from the two athletes. Under games rules only medical practitioners and athletes who give prior notice and with an approved medical condition requiring auto-injection such as diabetes can bring needles into the athletes’ village.
