Four athletes from three different nations were caught doping at last month's South Asian Federation Games in Sri Lanka, Sri Lankan Olympic Committee president Hemasiri Fernando said on Friday.
"Two Pakistani athletes and one each from Sri Lanka and Nepal have tested positive for banned substances," he told Reuters from Colombo.
Fernando said the 'A' urine samples sent to an accredited laboratory in Malaysia had returned positive, but
Fernando said no Indian athlete had tested positive, denying media reports on Friday which said participants from the biggest country in the eight-nation games were also involved.
"No Indian athlete has tested positive," he said.
Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Maldives were the other participating nations.
