Court to receive Pinki's test report today

Pinki Pramanik’s gender mystery might be unveiled on Tuesday as the reports of the chromosome pattern test report to determine the gender of the Asiad gold medallist runner, which reached SSKM Hospital on Monday, will be submitted to the court on Tuesday. 

“The reports of Karyotyping, a chromosomal test to determine Pinki’s gender, was received by us today (Monday) in a sealed envelope. The reports will be produced before the court of chief judicial magistrate, Barasat, (North 24 Parganas) tomorrow,” Superintendent of SSKM Hospital T K Ghosh told Deccan Herald.

The blood sample of Pinki, accused of being a male and responsible for raping a divorcee and a mother of one, who’s currently under judicial custody, was sent to an undisclosed location by the SSKM Hospital authorities on July 2.

Pinki, who was arrested on June 14, was initially tested at Barasat District Hospital but as the tests remained inconclusive, she was later referred to SSKM Hospital to undergo several tests. Failing to come to any conclusion, her blood samples were sent for Karyotyping. Pinki, however, said that it was a conspiracy hatched against her.

Pinki, who retired from athletics three years ago, won gold in the 4x400 metres relay at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha in Qatar. In the same year, the former middle-distance runner also won a silver medal at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games.

The Eastern Railway, with which the athlete is a ticket collector, suspended Pinki on June 16 following her remand in judicial custody.
