It was a big victory for Pinki Pramanik after the Calcutta High Court dropped all charges against the Asian Games gold medallist.
She had been arrested, kept in custody for 25 days and forced to undergo a sex verification test to determine her gender. She had appealed to the High Court in 2013.
Pinki got bail and the trial was to begin in a lower court. But that's when Pinki, with the support of lawyers and gender activists, appealed to Calcutta High Court in 2013 for charges against her to be dropped.
