Indian athlete Pinki Pramanik: 'Police treated me badly'


Pinki Pramanik, a female Indian athlete arrested on charges of rape and claims that she is actually male, has left jail a day after she was granted bail.

Ms Pramanik, who won several medals for India, was arrested in West Bengal state last month after a complaint from her live-in partner, who is a woman.
