"Two Sports Authority of India officials attached with the athletes training program and two other women officials of the Elite Sports Women’s Hostel have been removed," the ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

The government on Tuesday dismissed Ukrainian coach Yuri Ogorodnik, who was in charge of six of the eight athletes who tested positive for anabolic steroids.

Among the disgraced athletes are Ashwini Akkunji, Mandeep Kaur and Sini Jose, who were all part of the women’s 1,600-meter relay squads that won gold at the New Delhi Commonwealth Games and Guangzhou Asian Games last October and November. Akkunji had also won the 400 hurdles at Guangzhou.
