Kolkata, Nov 14 : Controversial  athlete Pinki Pramanik, who has been declared a male by West Bengal police in its chargesheet before a court, has said, she was being treated like a joker in a circus.



Pramanik told The Hindu that it was offensive when the police or an additional public prosecutor comments on her gender in public.

“It is not for the police or an additional public prosecutor to make repeated remarks on my gender,” Pinki said a day  after an additional public prosecutor claimed that she was a male.
