Santhi Soundarajan to File Human Rights Case Against Sports Bodies

New Delhi:


 

Ten years after she was stripped off a medal for failing a 'gender test' during the Doha Asian Games, former athlete Santhi Soundarajan is set to file a human rights violation case against the authorities, including Athletics Federation of India and Indian Olympic Association.


Soundarajan, whose silver medal she won in 800m at the 2006 Asiad was taken off by the Olympic Council of Asia, has filed complaints at the National Commission for Schedule Castes and Schedule Tribes, National Commission for Human Rights and National Commission for Women.


Gopi Shankar, head of NGO Srishti Madurai, said that Soundarajan is now planning to file a petition at either Madras High Court or the Supreme Court.


AFI President Adille Sumariwalla, however, said that the federation cannot do much because Soundarajan was banned and medal stripped off by the OCA during the Asian Games.


Shankar said due to lack of documents, including the report of the test conducted in Doha in 2006 on the basis of which Soundarajan was banned and stripped off her medal, she has not been able to file human rights violation complaints.


"Can you imagine that Soundarajan was not given the report of the test done in 2006 in Doha and it is ten years now? I filed an RTI to get the report, she also filed another RTI but she has not got the report on the basis of which she was banned and medal taken off," Shankar told PTI from Madurai.


"Now she has filed a complaint at the National Commission for Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribes (in September last) in which Sports Ministry was the party. She has also filed a complaint at the National Human Rights Commission last month that action be taken against AFI, IOA, SAI and Sports Ministry for subjecting to human rights violation during the test in Doha," he added.
