This Indian athlete is accused of being a male by her live-in-partner. The estranged woman also alleged that she was raped by Pinki Parmanik. It should be noted that Pinki is a gold medalist of Doha Asiad games and SAF games in Colombo. She has been working in Indian railways for three years.

Gender determination test

This is the most atrocious thing for a woman. After so many achievements, a gold medalist winner is accused of being a male. She is now being repeatedly examined to check whether she is a male or female, just because a woman has lodged a complaint against her for being a male. So what about the gender tests that held before every game or event? How can they be easily denied? Apparently the reports of her latest gender tests are inconclusive. She was taken for sex determination tests without her permission.

MMS

Still it was not the end of her sufferings. An MMS showing the athlete completely naked and undergoing tests has gone viral online. Kolkata police took her for the tests in a private nursing Home and no one else knew about the schedule. Now who is responsible for the recording? And who can be held responsible for all the harassment and mental trauma she faced? What if she come out of the matter clean? Who will pay for all the insult she faced? If she survived (only if she is very strong to overcome all the suicidal feelings), will she be able to lead a normal life onward ?

Statements

All her childhood friends, her parents and neighbors are standing with her. They have seen her as a girl from her childhood but nobody is believing them. Their statements are simply ignored. She is suspended from her job and the case has blown all her reputation and respect.

The Other way

Suppose if she consist of male chromosomes or is suffering from Trans gender disorder, in that case also she is unable to rape a woman. This is a scientific fact. Who has given them the right to interfere in an individual's life?

Standing for rights

Indian Human Rights Association has come forward to help the athlete. Many other social forums are supporting Pinki. Her co-athletes and games person have come forward for a respectable conclusion of the case. But after all this conspiracy will she be able to move on and lead a normal life?

Yes, but in India, I think nothing is crystal clear. But let's hope for the best results.

Yes, I agree but sex determination is not a big issue at all for the medical science! Thanks!

She will survive only if she will have enough mental strength. But what she is facing is an example of enormity. I dont know when our society will become broad minded enough to accept and understand these things.
