Kolkata:

The Calcutta High Court has directed the state government to file an affidavit within two weeks after a public interest litigation was filed claiming that athlete Pinki Pramanik's constitutional rights were violated.

The PIL claimed that Pinki was harassed and asked the court to ensure that she was not humiliated. It also wanted steps against those accused of harassing her.

The athlete has been subjected to misery after cops allegedly groped her. A video of her during a gender test also went viral on the web last week.
