The Jharkhand-based players alleged that since their coach had political connections, they could not take the chance of filing a criticism against him in their home state.
The girls came down to Delhi, where they approached the Delhi Commission For women, who helped them file the grievance at Kamla Market police station.
“The girls approached us with their complaint and we helped them file a police complaint. They told our counselor that the coach had also been harassing alternative women and since he is quite powerful, they were scared,” said a DCW official.
As per the complaint filed by the victims, the accused who is additionally related to Jharkhand Taekwondo Association allegedly raped them by offering them spiked drinks once they had joined taekwondo coaching, police said.
He also created “obscene” videos and took photos of the victims and would blackmail them, they said.
The girls alleged that the suspect would threaten them whenever they thought of approaching the police which the harassment had been continued for several years, police said.
A zero FIR has been registered here and the matter forwarded to Jharkhand police for further probe, they added.
