An international hockey player of Indian origin has filed a police complaint against national team captain Sardar Singh alleging sexual harassment. The 21-year-old player has filed a written complaint with Ludhiana police.

The woman claimed she has been engaged to Sardar for the past four years and alleged that he “mentally, physically and emotionally tortured” her. She also alleged that Sardar forced her to abort their child in 2015 against her wishes and later refused to marry her.

Ludhiana Police Commissioner P S Umranangal said that a “complaint is being verified” and no FIR has been registered. “The woman has alleged sexual harassment and filed a written complaint against national hockey captain Sardar Singh. The maternal family of the player lives near Bhaini Sahib and the woman has alleged that they met during visits to this religious sect guru. FIR has not been registered as investigation is going on,” he said.

According to the complainant, she met Sardar during the London Olympics and got engaged soon after. However, their relationship had strained for the past few months. She alleged that Sardar “blackmailed” her to abort the child. “I met him during the London Olympics and we got to know each other better after that. We got engaged but in 2015 I got pregnant. He told me to abort the child, which I did against my wishes and without getting support from anyone,” she told The Indian Express. She claimed that she had got in touch with Indian High Commission officials in her country, who advised her to file a police complaint.

She claimed that the India captain abandoned her after the abortion. “He has been ignoring me and has refused to marry me after that incident. He has harassed me emotionally, physically and mentally,” she alleged.

The woman, who has roots in Sirsa, added that she had called police at India’s team hotel during the World Hockey League in Antwerp last year, when Sardar allegedly assaulted her. “I have filed a complaint and hope I will get justice,” she said.

    There is no fire with out smoke. Even if we ume that he did not abuse her, the fact that he left a girl after 4 years soon after an abortion does not make him look good. Though we don't know the truth, Sardara is looking like a cruel, inhumane person.

      Woman is charging serious charges against him. She is charging him of forcing her to abort as if he has forcibly tying her down to bed and aborted her. She must have aborted with her own consent as before the abortion her consent must have been taken in writing. This kind of harment must stop against the male. Because of such frivolous charges the real cases are side tracked losing the focus on the entire subject.

        This seems to be a fake rape case again to extort money.

          He does not love her anymore. Doesn't want to be with her. How can he marry her???. Any decent woman would not have done such a thing. Don't think she ever loved him.
