Indian anti-doping officials raid sports center

India's National Anti Doping Agency says it has raided one of the country's top sports centers for elite athletics in a search for banned drugs, following a string of doping cases earlier this month.
NADA's Director-General Rahul Bhatnagar tells The Associated Press on Monday that it raided the Sports Authority of India center in Bangalore, southern India and that "more such raids could be expected" at other centers.
The agency also searched the National Institute of Sports in the northern city of Patiala over the weekend.
Eight Indian track and field athletes have tested positive for banned anabolic steroids. Six of them, all 400 meter runners, had trained at Patiala.
