Asian Games gold medallist athlete Pinki Pramanik is a male, confirms the medical test report.

Pramanik, who was arrested on June 14 after a woman charged that the athlete was a male and had raped her, had earlier on July 11 said the allegations levelled against her was a conspiracy to defame her.

The West Bengal Human Rights Commission (WBHRC) had earlier issued a notice to the state police for insensitively handling Pinki's case.
