Kabaddi coach faints after MLA's dress taunt

Sunil Dabas

Drona­charya awardee and national-level Kabaddi coach Sunil Dabas on Friday fainted and fell down from the dais, apparently after hearing a remark on her attire by a Congress MLA.

Dabas, head of the physical education department at Dronacharya Government College here, was told by Congress legislator from Badshahpur, Rao Dharam Pal, that she should wear a “good dress” instead of shirt and trousers, police said.

The MLA, who was the chief guest at the college for its annual day function, was being introduced to the college staff. When it was Dabas’s turn, he reportedly told her: “You are a good player and a good coach also, you should wear a good dress.”
She was reportedly wearing a cream-coloured shirt and black trouser, while other women staff were dressed traditionally.

When the programme started, the MLA again hinted at her outfit, the police said. Dabas fainted and fell from the dais after some time, they added. Her husband, Vivek Dabas, also claimed that his wife fainted after the legislator made a remark on her clothes. She became unconscious after her heartbeat and blood pressure went up, he claimed.


Dabas was taken to a private hospital and later shifted to Medicity Medanta hospital here. Students of the college protested against the remarks made by the legislator, claiming that Dabas fainted because she felt humiliated.

But Dharampal denied remarking on the coach’s clothes. “Maine to kaha tha ki beti tum bahut badi khiladi ho, bahut inaam tumne jeete hain, dhang se raha karo (I just said daughter, you are a big player, you have won many awards, you should behave properly),” the legislator said.

The MLA said he was “himself a student of the college and wanted to morally teach the staff to wear good dresses to give a good message to the students.”Meanwhile, Pal apologised for his remark on Saturday.
