Based on a complaint by a junior athletics coach on Friday, Chandigarh police filed a sexual harassment and criminal intimidation case against Haryana Sports Minister Sandeep Singh. Earlier, the minister called for an independent probe and dismissed the allegations.
In a press conference, the woman called on the Manohar Lal Khattar government to sack Sandeep Singh and set up a Special Investigation Team.
Security has also been requested by the complainant.
Former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda had also called for an impartial inquiry.
Mr Singh saw her at the gym and then contacted her on Instagram, the complainant said.
She said the minister kept insisting they meet up. She added, “He messaged me on Instagram saying my national games certificate was pending and wanted to meet.”
“Unfortunately, my certificate has been misplaced by my federation and I’m taking it up with them.”
She said she agreed to meet him at his residence-cum-camp office here with some other documents she had, and when she went there, the minister raped her.
Sandeep Singh, a BJP MLA from Pehowa in Kurukshetra, is also a professional field hockey player.
In 2018, Punjabi singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh starred in a biopic about Mr Singh called ‘Soorma’. Besides that, he was a judge on MTV Roadies.
When he was 20, he miraculously recovered from a gunshot wound. Just two days before the 2007 Hockey World Cup, Mr Singh was accidentally shot by an assistant sub-inspector of the Railways Police Force. He was paralyzed from the waist down for a year.
