What is up with this? Every 3 years it's the same accusation. First it was Santhi Soundarajan, from India in 2006, then it was Caster Semenya, from South Africa in 2009, and now its Pinki Pramanik, from India in 2012. Okay, Santhi Soundarajan was stripped of medals so apparently failed the gender test.

Pinki Pramanik has been detained on charges of fraud and cheating with possible charges of Rape by her live-in partner.


Runner Pinki Pramanik has been detained on charges of fraud and cheating after allegations by Anamika Acharya, a woman claiming to be her live-in partner, said Rajeev Kumar, the police commissioner of Bidhannagar in West Bengal State.

Acharya has also accused Pramanik of being a man. If a medical examination establishes she is male, police could charge her with rape, Kumar said.


She is refusing to submit to the gender test and a court order is being sought. By the way she is retired.

Anyway here is the link.... www.cnn.com...

What are you talking about? "She" competed as a woman....against other women.

I can tell from looking at the photo that "she" is a man.

Anyway,her refusal to take the test says it all for me."She" knows she'll be found out.

I'm not sure what that has to do with being accused of sexual assault,though.That has nothing to do with lying about your gender for the "Asian Games".

So what? Why should that make a difference? I bet he/she dresses better then half those women anyway.

If they said in 2010 he could compete as woman, then he's a woman.

Who am I to judge?

Well perhaps you would change your mind if you were competing against him in a female competition. Also, looks like someone else who competed in the same games was stripped of their title after being found out as a man. They seem to have *takes off shades* dropped the ball a few times.

You missed the point.It does make a difference..there's a reason men and women have different sports...

I'm actually surprised someone with the name "MANhater" is okay with a man pretending to be a woman to compete against women...

Doesn't matter what they said in 2010..again..if they're refusing to comply with proving that they are a woman..that's a red flag.

Maybe if he shaved off his moustache no one would have known...

As far as the rape charge goes....

If this person is really a man, and represented himself as a woman, I totally support the charge of rape. There is NO excuse to represent yourself as a woman and have sex with a man, who is expecting to have sex with a woman, when you are really a man. Such an act, I would agree, is rape. Because if you were honest the man would NOT have sex with you. I think the person should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for rape.

I would also say, that if this person was really a man, and represented himself as a woman, to play woman's sports, he should loose any and all medals and achievements. He should also be convicted of fraud, since fraud is what he has been perpetrating.

I was reading about this case few days ago..in local newspaper it mentioned she has both male and female parts. So I dont know where she will fit in exactly.

That brow ridge alone speaks volumes, but when you compare that with the width of the cheek bones, it's a boy!

If nobody ever questioned this, I have to wonder whether it's common in India for parents to raise their boys as girls, making it common to see "women" who are actually, and obviously, men.

Not to mention that mustache in the one picture throws it off a bit too
