Goa molestation scandal: Parents had demanded woman coach
Panaji: Was the Goa government and the Goa Swimming Association aware of the alleged sexual harassment of girl swimmers by the arrested chief coach Surajit Ganguly, much before the video, which shows him allegedly molesting a minor swimmer, went viral last week?
According to another video clip, leader of opposition Digambar Kamat, during the last Assembly session, had warned sports minister Manohar Ajgaonkar of possible consequences if the state government did not appoint a female coach for the training of girl swimmers.
“Girls are facing embarrassment and problems. There is not a single woman coach. Please keep it in mind. It is very important or tomorrow I do not know what ill-consequences it will have. The parents are insisting on a women coach, which is very fair,” Kamat had told the state legislative assembly. “There are many girls who are enrolled for swimming. Their parents unofficially complain to us. They want a woman coach for swimming.”
