Pramanik had been arrested last month after her housemate alleged that she was raped and claimed that the 26-year old was in fact a male.

Pramanik alleged mistreatment from the police and claimed that she was forced to undergo a gender test after she was injected with a sedative.

"I look more male now because, as part of my training to compete in international athletics, I used to be regularly administered testosterone injections. It was called Russian medicine. I was told that it was necessary to take these and I never questioned whether these were legal or not", she said.
