Bhubaneswar: Ace sprinter from Odisha, Dutee Chand, who had been shunned by her family in 2019 for being in a same-sex relationship, has now alleged that her elder sister Saraswati Chand is also having a relationship with a girl.
Talking to OMMCOM NEWS, Dutee said that Saraswati had always been opposing her but the issue came to an end after she conducted a press meet and revealed about her lesbian relationship.
But now Saraswati is also having a relationship with a girl who is from Assam, she alleged. “She is staying at our house and is being treated as a daughter-in-law. If she (Saraswati) is also maintaining such a relationship, what was the need of opposing me,” questioned Dutee.
The same-sex relationship of her elder sister doesn’t bother Dutee but she alleged that Saraswati has been mentally harassing her on social media which has affected her practice.
Dutee has asked the media to find out who is the girl. “I was in friendship with a girl and it was alleged to be a lesbian relationship, I was shamed before the world, so who is the girl and why is she staying near my elder sister,” she added.
OMMCOM NEWS tried to get in touch with Saraswati for her comments but she was unreachable at the time this article was published.
