Indian origin hockey player has filed a police complaint against national team captain Sardar Singh alleging sexual harassment.
The girl, who also claims to be Sardar’s fiancee, is an India-origin Britisher who visited India recently to file the complaint, which she did on February 1 at the Kum Kalan Police Station in the Ludhiana city. She also accuses Sardar of “blackmail, mental harassment and physical harassment.”
However, the complaint – the receipt of which is in possession of IBNLive – is yet to be verified by the police, who haven’t lodged an FIR yet. Ludhiana police commissioner Paramraj Singh Umranangal has reportedly ordered an inquiry into the complaint.
Sardar, who has been leading India since 2012, is himself a deputy superintendent of police in Haryana.
She claims to have even visited Sardar’s family at his native village in Sirsa and alleges that he is now “betraying” her.
“I and Sardar have been together for four years and I am his fiancee…now he is betraying me,” the girl told ETV. “He used to love me a lot earlier, but now I am heartbroken. We should have been married by now but he is now not even answering my messages or phone calls for three months.
“I don’t want to speak about his hockey career. I have no issues with him focusing on that, but what he has done to me is wrong,” she said. “What’s happening is not good. I am also a daughter and sister of somebody, and they are upset as well.”
She said that when they got engaged at Sardar’s village, his family too was in attendance.
“Sardar’s family was there [at the time of engagement]. My parents and family couldn’t come, but they had given their permission,” said the girl.
Calling Sardar a “fraud”, she said he even lied to her about his age and caste.
“He has done fraud with me and also lied about his age. He told me that he is a Jatt, while I am a Ramgarhia. Now I have lodged a complaint, and the court will decide,” she said.
The UK girl went on to accuse Sardar of something as serious as physical abuse.
“Yes, blackmail, [he has caused me] mental harassment, physical harassment,” she said, adding that he even tried to threaten her. “He said, ‘I am a DSP and India captain, you being a foreigner can’t do anything’,” the girl claimed.
She is reportedly flying back to the UK after filing the complaint and says her family is with her in the step she has taken against Sardar.
“The British High Commission advised me to go to India and take up the case. My parents are in the UK. They are supporting me and are always there with me,” she said.
She even hinted that there is another girl in Sardar’s life now. “I think there is another girl. You will get to know with time…My advocates will take the case forward from here.”http://www.ibnlive.com/news/sports/india-hockey-captain-sardar-singhs-fiancee-accuses-him-of-attempt-to-rape-police-complaint-filed-1198304.html
