India's National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) has banned volleyball player Aman Kumar for four years after he failed a doping test conducted in March of last year.
The Times of India reported that the national level player, who resides in Rishikesh, will be unable to participate in any volleyball event in the country.
Kumar was asked to submit a response following his suspension in March, but DK Singh, general secretary of the Uttarakhand Olympic Association, said he did not do so.
"The player was given several opportunities to present his case but he failed to reply to any of our notices," he was reported as saying by The Times of India.
"NADA has now decided to ban the player for four years, effective from 2018."
