KOLKATA: Asian Games gold medalist Pinki Pramanik, who was embroiled in a controversy surrounding her gender, was charged with rape and cheating by the police after medical tests established that the athlete is a male.Pinki spent 25 days in jail after her former partner, Anamika Acharya, who lived with her for three years, accused her of rape, Indian media reports said.A board of seven doctors had been set up then to determine Pinki's gender. Their report says that Pinki is male. The court trial will begin soon for Pinki.Pinky, 26, is the daughter of a poor farmer in rural West Bengal. She was granted bail in July, and authorities say she is unlikely to be re-arrested ahead of her trial.Pinki won gold in the 4×400 metres relay at the 2006 Asian Games in Qatar, and was a silver medallist at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games the same year. She stopped competing the following year. – SAMAA/AGENCIES
