Kolkata: Pinki Pramanik’s former live-in partner submitted tapes to the police on Monday of what she claimed were conversations between her and broker Avtar Singh to “prove” her allegation that she had brought rape charges against the Asian Games gold medallist at his instigation.
The woman alleged Singh wanted to exploit the rift in her relationship with Pinki and used her as a cog in a “blackmail plot” as a land dispute with the former athlete turned bitter. She said she had recorded the conversations to protect herself as she didn’t trust Singh and was well aware of his flip-flops. “Singh would often drop in at our house in Teghoria. He knew there was a problem between me and Pinki and took this opportunity to turn me against her. In May, he instructed me to take a nude video of Pinki and circulate it,” the woman told TOI after submitting the tapes at Baguiati police station. “Singh told me only the video can prove to the world Pinki is a male. He said he would hand over the video to the sports ministry, the railways and other concerned people,” she added.
