The WKL CEO said that all results were managed in compliance with International Standards, respective players were given the opportunity to appear before the Anti-Doping Disciplinary Board, but many of the players waived off their right by not appearing before the board within the stipulated time period of 15 days.

The Wave WKL in accordance with WKL Anti-Doping Standard and WADA Code will impose necessary sanctions on these athletes. Mr. Raheja said that Wave WKL was in constant contact with WADA authorities and the details of athletes and respective adverse analytical findings have been shared with WADA Headquarters in Montreal, Canada.

Commenting on the findings and the announcement, Mr. Pargat Singh, Commissioner, World Kabaddi League stated, “Wave World Kabaddi league follows the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) objective ‘Play True’ and the doping control program developed for the World Kabaddi League (WKL) was athlete focused with the objective of providing confidence to athletes that they are competing on a ‘level playing field’ and to act as a deterrent to athletes and their support staff from competing unfairly and putting the athletes welfare at risk. Its secondary function was to test athletes to ensure that they are not competing whilst under the influence of performance enhancing substances or methods; and finally the program aimed to provide information relating to the doping control rules and procedures; and on the consequences of doping in Kabaddi.”
