Chandigarh, Feb. 4 (ANI): Under fire Indian hockey captain Sardar Singh on Thursday rubbished the allegations made by the British woman, who claimed that he, along with his brother, harassed her physically and mentally.
“We had met through Facebook during the London Olympics. The allegations she levelled and the words she used against me are inappropriate and false. I know my limits. I represent my country. I believe myself,” Singh told the media here.
“She had tweeted that very soon we are getting married. Right now, I can say my full focus is on hockey…so let me play. It is totally wrong that she was forced to abort,” he added.
The veteran midfielder further said reports of ring ceremony is also wrong and added that they were just good friends.
“No, there was no ring ceremony between us. She was just a good friend. The allegations are false,” he said.

The complainant further said that after Sardar forced her to abort the child following which she returned to UK and consulted her family.
“I was left with no other option but to abort this child against my will. After this matter, Sardar abandoned me, he doesn’t speak to me, has no contacts with me. He actually denied the fact that I am his fiancee when it is a world known matter,” she said.
“After being physically and mentally harassed by Sardar Singh, as a woman it’s not fair that I should take this abuse and not just by him but by his elder brother as well as him,” she added.
