Ranjita Devi's accusations seems a bit dubious. Even though she has touched on the sexual harrassment side, most of her letter was on advocating 'some one else' as coach. If her accusations are proved wrong, strong legal and criminal action should be taken against her.
D. Goel Pkl. afternoon, 2.05pm,Friday, 23rd july 2010. The Present Committe headed by A senior sportsmen have an unenviable job of finding their old trusted colleagues in Dock for grave accusations of Sexual harassment by Ms Ranjita Dev and her 30 Girl colleagues about some sort of sexual libidinous acts.Whether these are True charges ,or they motivated by Pique for grouses ,I do not feel like pre-judging.Let the committee named makes a thorough analysis of all submissions and make courageous Recommendations without Fear or Favour , to eradicate this environment of Bawdy discourse of Lady Sports-personnel.D. Goel
The incident happens in months ago. The story published through the media just before the team had to go for international competition. We cannot digest the timings and the honesty of the complainants motive at this later stage. If she is against any type of couching,then she should have immediately lodged the compalint and not at this later stage. Yes, we all are aware that casting couch is happening in modelling life, film industry and even in some major industries and offices where ladies are in keen to get a chance to work in those respective fileds. However, no lady who is living in a respectable family life style, never allow it to happen at any cost. It is happening in these section, because these people wants instant money, famous and celebrity life style. They knows it very well. The ladies who are also responsible and they should also get prosecuted against not lodging complaints in time and the complaints who are lodged later stage should be declared as null and void and in that case whatever happens should be treated with the consent of the complainants.

I don't know if you are a homonist, but this is some gyaan for you from wikipedia. "Sexual harassment is intimidation, bullying or coercion of a sexual nature, or the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favors. In some contexts or circumstances, sexual harassment may be illegal. It includes a range of behavior from seemingly mild transgressions and annoyances to actual sexual abuse or sexual assault. Sexual harassment is a form of illegal employment discrimination in many countries, and is a form of abuse (sexual and psychological) and bullying. For many businesses, preventing sexual harassment, and defending employees from sexual harassment charges, have become key goals of legal decision-making. In contrast, many scholars complain that sexual harassment in education remains a "forgotten secret," with educators and administrators refusing to admit the problem exists in their schools, or accept their legal and ethical responsibilities to deal with it (Dziech, 1990)."
Just dont spit your thoughts. Neither of us have any first hand information. Why blame the ladies for malpractices when we aren't sure
It is only some one fooling around. And any way the role of the woman is to satisfy a man. She could have agreed and give him satisfaction. In return look at what she would have got. Her reward was a place in in the Indian team. That is very generous.

Kutty Like you I am also Keralam. You know how we all come up. You know it is in our culture to use our body to the maximum benefit. Pls don't support these peoples as they don;t have practical knowledge of coming up in life. By 2020 our peoples will control all of India.
Mr Ikbal is worng person chosen to head the committee. Harassment has not be physical to be qualified as sexual harassment. Even verbal sexual harassment is equally bad. Look at the autocratic attitude that why she hasnt complaint in last six years. If she wasnt able to gather courage in past six year, so should it mean she should live her whole life being molested by this pervert.
Giving a cleanchit just like that in statements make me wonder if Mr Ikbal himself sold his soul to the coach. Ideally he should have refrained from giving any statement at all and least of all giving clean chit on such a sensitive issue.
It is a criminal case and must be inestigated accordingly not by stooges who can be bribed and used as mouthpieces for the coach.

Indeed. I had high respect for Zafar as a national Hockey Player and Captain of team India, but by acting in such an unethical way he bought shame to sport.
He has let many sports fan down by acting in such unethical way.
HI is equally guilty in constituting a committe full of guilty person's friends. When this whole scandal started there was a doubt in rational mind that may be it is a conspiracy, but the way his friends and stooges have come out and the way they are trying to protect him clearly shows that he is guilty as charged. On top of that when a majority of Hockey Team is complaining then certainly there is truth to it. The case should be investigated by the competent authorities and till then this Kaushik should be kept away in his asylum.
