Accusing the state government of showing apathy to her, Asiad medalist Pinki Pramanik, who has been accused of raping her former live-in partner, on Thursday said she would write to the Central government and State Human Rights Commission to intervene into her case and solve the matter.
On Monday, police had submitted the gender test report to a court in Barasat in which it has been said that Pinki is a male.
Speaking to The Indian Express over phone, Pinki said: "It's a social ignominy and a matter of shame for a person who has won accolades for the country. The state has been sitting on the case for pretty long time and I think it is time, the Centre should take it up."
"I am in talks with my lawyer and once the copy of the chargesheet and medical report arrive, I will write to the Central government and the State Human Rights Commission as well," Pinki added.
The 26-year-old runner also accused the police of harassment right from the beginning when the medical test video went viral on the net. "The police have been spreading rumours about my medical report. Before I got bail, there was nothing as such (confirmation of her being male) in the medical report. All of a sudden these seem to have appeared. Only I know the trauma I am going through at the moment. It is making me develop suicidal tendencies," Pinki said.
