After last night’s match, I came to know about the allegations. Tomorrow I have a match again. It is a very serious allegation. I will look at the report ans consult my lawyer. I will answer all questions but I need some time,” he said. Asked whether he got engaged with the complaintant, Sardar outrightly denied it, saying: “Nothing like that happened between us.”In her complaint to the Ludhiana Police Commissioner P S Umranangal, the woman had accused the veteran midfielder of “mentally, physically and emotionally” torturing her.The 21-year-old, in a startling revelation, has also claimed that Sardar, whom she met during the London Olympics in 2012 and has been engaged to him for the past four years,also forced her to abort their child in 2015. “We have been in a four-year relationship which was known to all in India and abroad.
