Tests show Pinki Pramanik is a male, charged with rape: Police
- Arvind Kejriwal released after brief detention in Gujarat over no permission for road show
- RJD, Congress agree on seat-sharing deal for Bihar
- Supreme Court takes suo motu cognisance of ink attack on Subrata Roy
- Rahul slams BJP, says party wants to vest power in one person
- Sheila Dikshit appointed Kerala Governor; Congress-RJD pact likely today
Pinki added that the court was yet to reply to the request for a copy of the medical report sought in September.
Acharya said she was happy with the outcome of the medical report. "There were many who questioned my character when I complained of being raped by Pinki. I am happy today and firmly believe that the other charges would be established soon. I have lived with him for three years and I know him like no one else," Acharya said.
Asked if she would claim damages, Acharya said: "Whatever damage he has done to my life and character, it can never be compensated. Now, more than anything else, I want to see him punished."
Medical Board member differs
A member of the medical board has differed with the chargesheet filed by the police. "After the chromosomal test we concluded that Pinki has a 46 XYY karyotype which indicates that the athlete has sexual development disorder. It's an abnormal karyotype and Pinki can't be called a male," said one of the board members.
Medals to stay with Pinki
The medals and awards that Pinki has won in national and international events will not be taken away for now. "The Athletics Federation of India will act only after the final verdict. The case is sub-judice and Pinki is fighting a legal battle. The athlete is not guilty until charges are proven in the court of law," West Bengal Athletics Association secretary Kamal Moitra said.
