I was treated like an animal: Pinki
Asian Games gold medallist Pinki Pramanik, released from jail yesterday, alleged that she was treated like an animal during gender tests and blackmailed for money by the complainant
“When the gender tests were conducted in the hospital, I was treated like an animal,” said Pinki, who was freed after 26 days in judicial custody for allegedly raping her live-in partner, a divorcee and a mother of one.
The athlete was granted bail by the district and sessions judge on Tuesday. Meanwhile, West Bengal Sports Minister Madan Mitra alleged that Pramanik was involved in a land scam as she had illegally sold a plot leased to her by the state government free of cost. But the former athlete denied any wrongdoing.
