Indian gymnastics suffered major embarrassment when a woman gymnast accused her coach and an international level player of making obscene remarks against her.
The woman athlete accuses coach Manoj Rana and fellow gymnast Chandan Pathak of making lewd comments against her during a training camp at the Indira Gandhi Sports Complex in the capital.
“They were discussing my attire and made fun of my innerwear,” the 20-year-old woman said in her FIR. “They kept making fun of me in abusive language which harmed my dignity and self-respect. There are words which were highly depressing and I cannot elaborate.”
The woman said the incident occurred on September 2, but despite bring the matter to the notice of Indian Gymnastics Federation, no action was taken.
The accusation comes just days before the start of the Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea.
