Hockey player, TS Ranjitha spoke to Times Now on how the coach tried to persuade her into having sex with him.
Recalling an encounter with the coach during a camp in Bhopal, Ranjitha said,"Kaushik sir called me to his room and asked me whether I have had sex. I was quiet for a while, then he said it's good to have sex."
"Kaushik sir used to have one-on-one meetings with everybody for 10-15 minutes, but with me he used to always take an hour. He used to repeatedly say that I am beautiful," she added.
Further revealing shocking details of sexual harassment on the part of MK Kaushik, Ranjitha told the channel, "During our tour to China one night, he called me to his room and started talking about my game. Soon he started talking about all sorts of things. He said you are pretty, you stay in Mumbai alone, you must be having a lot of fun. He even said that he was available 24 hours for me. He did not say it once or twice, he repeated it at least 5 times and that too pointing at the bed."
Indian women hockey plunged into turbulence a few days back when an anonymous letter to the governing body, Hockey India, accused the coach of sexual harassment as well as exposed the sexual orgy that the videographer of the team had with prostitutes while on a tour with the team through photographic evidence.
