His performance in the Federation Cup could not be ignored, so the AFI included him in the team that attended the training camp in Turkey.
Phone number wrong, coach was also guilty of doping
On calling Aishwarya’s mobile number with AFI, messages of wrong number were received. The AFI and its Maharashtra unit tried to trace Aishwarya’s whereabouts through former and current coaches to persuade her to join the national camp but to no avail.
The source said that the person from whom Aishwarya was coaching in Haryana also told AFI that she has not been in touch with the athlete since early April. It has also been learned that the man is a former athlete and was banned for eight years by NADA in 2016 for being caught in doping.
Discussion received in 2019, headlines gathered in 2022
Aishwarya first came into the limelight in October 2019 during the Inter College Athletics competition of the University of Mumbai as she clocked 52.40 seconds in the 400m race. Soon after, he was inducted into the national camp. That year also he was selected for the training camp in Turkey.

AFI got out
At the same time, in this whole incident, AFI has also put in concern for K and this is the reason why the national association is not saying much. AFI President Adil Sumariwala said that since he is not part of the national camp, the federation cannot do much in such a case. Sumariwala said, he is not in the camp and in such a situation we cannot do much. So AFI is not involved in this. She was selected for a training camp in Turkey but she did not come so we are trying to find out where she is now. We want to persuade him to join the national camp.
Even the people of Aishwarya’s kingdom are not aware of her discovery. Maharashtra Athletics Association secretary Satish Uchill said that even his organization is not aware of Aishwarya’s whereabouts. He said, “She was earlier practicing at the SAI (Sports Authority of India) training center in Kandivali (Mumbai suburb). I contacted his local coach there but they also do not know his present whereabouts.”
