Bhubaneswar: May 21: Ace Sprinter Dutee Chand blamed her sister Saraswati for ongoing controversy surrounding her family.
She said, ‘Her parents have not yet raised any objection to her same-sex relationship, but her eldest sister has been blackmailing her and threatening to expel her from the family’.
She said, she has been regularly supporting her family and always behaves as dutiful daughter.
But, Dutee’s mother has also objected to her daughter’s decision.
Ace Sprinter Dutee Chand said, her mother has been influenced by someone and is making statement against her.
She further alleged that, as her eldest sister is blackmailing over her relationship, she decided to go ahead with this and make it public.
Dutee said, she was contemplating to take legal action against her sister.
Dutee in an interview with a national daily said that she was in a relationship with a girl from her village.
Dutee’s sister Saraswati has also alleged that Dutee was being misguided by some persons. She denied all the allegations made by Dutee and said, there was no truth in her allegations.
