India are in line to get the Asian Games gold in 4x400 mixed relay as Kemi Adekoya of Bahrain, who was part of the gold winning team, has been handed a four-year ban for failing a dope test.

The silver won by India's mixed relay team of Mohammad Anas, Hima Das, Arokia Rajiv and M R Poovamma at the Asian Games in Jakarta last year is set to be upgraded to gold.

Athletics Integrity Unit said that Adekoya's results between August 24, 2018 and November 26, 2018 will be disqualified. This also means that India's Anu Raghavan, who finished fourth in 400m hurdles, is in line for the bronze as Adekoya won the gold in the event.

Following the race, India had officially lodged a complaint against Bahrain for obstruction, but it was turned down.
