The ban on horseowner Ajay Jalan has been lifted by the RCTC's appeal board, following a meeting on July 17. Jalan's suspension will now be over, on July 31.
In November 2012, his horse, Haddock,iwas administered a non-recognised drug, ATB 7, which was procured from Singapore by Jalan, and was administered by the RCTC's veterinary surgeon, Dr I. Banerji. A spate of actions followed, thereafter, and it led to a year-long suspension of the horse's trainer Javed Khan. The suspension was, however, cut down to two months, on an appeal.
