In 2007 she and Malaysian shooters Bibiana Ng and Siti Nur Masitah Mohd Badrin were banned for two years by the International Shooting Sport Federation [ISSF] after testing positive for propranolol. They had pleaded not guilty to the offence, claiming they were unaware chocolates given to them by their coach Anatoly Egrishchin contained the banned substance. They returned to the sport in April 2009. (thestar.com.my, 03 Aug 2009; indianshooting.com, 31 Jul 2009; thestar.com.my, 04 Jun 2009; news.asiaone.com, 30 Apr 2009)
