In a statement, the Sports Authority of India said that as per the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), campers who are a part of the national archery camp currently in progress, were given a RT-PCR test to know their Covid-19 status upon their arrival.
The South Asian Championship gold medallist is currently asymptomatic and has been admitted to a hospital in the city as a precautionary measure, it further informed.
"All precautions as established in the SAI SOPs are being followed to ensure that the camp can carry on in a safe and secure manner," SAI further said.
Last week, a member of the support staff attached to the national archery team at ASI, had also tested positive for the virus.
SAI had informed that the training camp at ASI was suspended for two days -- October 31 and November 1 -- and "all precautions were taken with campers being isolated and restricted to their respective rooms for those two days".
However, after that, the camp had resumed on Monday.
