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.
