Pinki Pramanik
New Delhi, Jul 12: Rape accused athlete Pinki Pramanik, who was released from jail on Wednesday smelled foul and alleged that her live-in partner Anamika might have circulated her MMS.

"I have been framed and the woman is still trying to fix me," said Pinki.

"My friend was blackmailing me for money. She had made me unconscious and taken some pictures of me, which she used against me," she told NDTV.

She also said that she was "treated like an animal" at the nursing home.

"In the last 25 days my worst experience was at the Uma Private Nursing Home where I was first taken for the test. They tied my hands and feet and took off my clothes and took pictures. I was treated like an animal," she said.

"They did not treat me badly in jail; male and female police would escort me to the hospital," she said.

Pinki, who worked as an employee of the Eastern Railway, was suspended following the allegations.

"I want my job in the railways back. I want justice," she said.

Pinki was granted bail after 25 days. She was arrested on Jun 24 following allegations of rape levelled against her by her live-in partner.

The middle distance runner, who won one silver medal and five gold medals between 2005 and 2006, retired in 2007. According to reports, due to her 'excessive male hormones', Pinki was not allowed in a Madurai national meet.

Following the rape allegations, Pinki was made to undergo a gender test which is yet to be made public.

Meanwhile, the athlete hogged the limelight after a 29-second MMS clip of Pinki undergoing a gender determination test in a private hospital went viral. The clip showed Pinki in an unclothed state undergoing the test.

A PIL was moved in the Calcutta High Court on Jul 6 after the MMS was leaked. The court directed the West Bengal government to file an affidavit within two weeks on the progress of the investigation.

The West Bengal Human Rights Commission also demanded that the health, home and police departments look into the "inhuman torture" on Pinki in the police and jail custody.
