12th November, 2012, Kolkata: On Monday, medical reports confirmed that Pinki Pramanik, the former athlete is a male. Soon after the reports, Pinki has been charged with cheating and rape in a case that was filed by Anamika Acharya.
Earlier in June, the former track athlete was charged for raping Anamika. Later, Pinki was sent in a fourteen – day judicial custody. At first, Pramanik expressed disagreements after some initial tests. After that police ordered a government-led examination as a part of this trial.
According to reports, preliminary medical reports suggested that Pramanik did not have a male organ, she had abnormal genitalia. Rape charges do not arrive with that condition. However, another medical examination by the SSKM hospital’s board of doctors revealed that Pinki Pramanik is a male.
Earlier, the WBHRC (West Bengal Human Rights Commission) gave a notice to the police for being a bit insensitive in dealing with Pinki’s case.
