Indian ace sprinter Dutee Chand opens up about ragging in hostel

Recalling the incident from 2006-07 at the sports hostel, Dutee Chand reveals that her seniors at the Sports Hostel used to force her to massage their bodies and wash their clothes

Indian Olympian Dutee Chand revealed on Sunday that she had faced ragging by her seniors during her stay at a state-run sports hostel in Bhubaneswar.

The Odisha-born sprinter recalled the incident on social media a day after a college student committed suicide due to ragging.

Recounting the incident from 2006-07 at the sports hostel, the 26-year-old alleged that her seniors at Sports Hostel in Bhubaneswar used to force her to ‘massage their bodies and wash their clothes.’

The Asian Games silver medalist further revealed that the seniors also made comments on her financial status about which she made complaints to the hostel-in-charge but nothing was ever done.

"It used to take a mental toll on me. I was helpless at that time," said the 100-metre National champion.

The authorities of the Sports Hostel in Bhubaneswar are yet to respond to the charges levelled by Dutee.

Dutee is a part of the Indian relay team for the upcoming Commonwealth Games, starting July 28.
