The Special Investigation Team (SIT) formed by Ludhiana police commissioner Jatinder Singh Aulakh to probe the sexual harassment allegations against Sardar Singh has given a clean chit to the Indian hockey team skipper.

In February, a British woman had filed a police complaint against Sardar alleging that he harassed her.

The woman had claimed that she was in a relationship with Sardar for the last four years. “I have been engaged to him for last two years. After engagement, Sardar forced me to be in a physical relationship on the terms that we are going to get married,” she said.

“Our relationship developed and within a year of 2015 he got me pregnant. After consulting with Sardar on this matter, he refused to speak to me and was adamant that I should abort the child right away,” she added.

Sardar had, however, rubbished all the allegations levelled against him, saying that the charges were ‘inappropriate’ and ‘false’.

The SIT, in their recent report, quashed all the allegations against the hockey captain. It said that all the charges against the hockey star were untrue.
