Indian Hockey was hit by fresh controversy on Tuesday after Hockey India received a letter accusing former Olympian M K Kaushik, coach of the women’s team, of sexual harrassment.
On Tuesday, while announcing that a four-member committee has been set up to probe the allegations against Kaushik, Hockey India general secretary Narendra Batra also informed that also received an anonymous mail last Friday, wherein allegations were levelled against the videographer being involved in a sexual orgy with prostitutes during the tour. He said five photographs of the videographer with the prostitutes had also been mailed to him.
“I must talk to the coach and the girl who has made the allegations of sexual harassment separately. Kaushik has withdrawn his name because he wants his name to be cleared,” HI President Vidya Stokes said.
