New Delhi | The mother of deceased Kerala rowing athlete today rejected the job offered by the Sports Development Authority and also maintained that her daughter was harassed by some seniors.
The 15-year-old Aparna died after consuming a poisonous fruit while three of her colleagues survived the alleged suicide bid at a SAI centre at Alappuzha. I do not want the temporary job offered by SAI. I have lost my daughter. What I want is justice, Aparna’s mother Geetha told reporters in Thiruvananthapuram today.
Geetha claimed her daughter told her about the harassment by two seniors at the water sports centre of SAI in Alappuzha when she was at the hospital. She also alleged that some in SAI were trying to protect the culprits.
The persons who harassed my daughter are moving around freely, she added.
Geetha’s charges comes a couple of days after the parents of the other three SAI trainees, who survived the suicide attempt and undergoing treatment at a hospital, demanded a CBI probe into the incident.
Expressing dissatisfaction with the inquiry conducted by SAI Director General and police, the parents dismissed the DG’s preliminary report that there was no ragging, calling it was ‘baseless’.
