|Kolkata, June 18: Asian Games athletics gold medallist Pinki Pramanik, accused of being a male and currently remanded to judicial custody for alleged rape, underwent a gender determination test today, the result of which will be declared on Tuesday, police said.
"Pramanik today (Monday) underwent a gender determination test at the Barasat Sub-Divisional Hospital (North 24 Parganas) for which a six-member medical board was constituted. The board will give its verdict on Tuesday," Rajib Kumar, commissioner of police for Bidhannagar said.
Pramanik was arrested on late Thursday night and remanded to 14 days' judicial custody by a court on Friday after the athlete's live-in partner, a divorcee and a mother of one, filed a police complaint accusing the athlete of being a male who repeatedly "raped and tortured" her.
The athlete, who refused to undergo the test twice earlier, willingly took the test on Monday.
Subsequent to the arrest, Pramanik was taken to a private nursing home for a medical check-up where test reports showed that the former athlete was indeed a male.
Pramanik, however, claimed innocence and said it was a conspiracy.
Pramanik, who retired from athletics three years ago, won gold in the 4x400 metres relay at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha in Qatar. She was a silver medallist at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games the same year.
The Eastern Railway, with which the athlete is a ticket collector, on Sunday suspended Pramanik following her remand to judicial custody. (IANS)
