New Delhi: A 16-member Indian athletics team, led by top sprinter Dutee Chand, will on Saturday depart for China to participate in the three-leg Asian Grand Prix 2017.

The first two legs of the AGP 2017 will be held in the Chinese cities of Jiaxing and Jinhua on April 24 and April 27, respectively, while the third and final leg will be held at Chinese Taipei on April 30.

Men's 400m national record holder Mohammed Anas and Poovamma Raju, 2014 Incheon Asian Games women's 400m bronze medallist, will join rest of the team for the last-leg of the competition in Chinese Taipei at a later stage.

Both Anas and Poovamma have not got visas for China. Meanwhile, 17-year old high jumper Tejaswin Shankar, has sustained a back injury last week and is dropped from the China-bound Indian team. Dutee and Reena George will represent India in women's 100m, with Vidyasagar Siddarajanayaka turning out in men's 10m race.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Today will be an industrious day. The stars foretell that you may visit a historical place, or perhaps a museum. However, Ganesha says, you may need to pay a little attention to your health. If such is the case, it would be better to take the evening off for yourself.
