Sardar Singh accused of sexual harassment

New Delhi: In a shocking development, Indian hockey team captain Sardar Singh was accused of sexually harassing his long time girlfriend in a complaint filed at a police station in Ludhiana.

The woman, Ashpal Bhogal a British citizen and a hockey player herself, filed a complaint at the Koom Kalan police station at Sri Bhaini Shaib in Ludhiana on Tuesday against the Indian skipper alleging that he had backed out of their relationship and was refusing to marry her now.

The girl said that she was engaged to Sardar for four years. He mentally and physically harassed her, she alleged.
