She is a kind of soul-mate for me and I want to settle down with her in future,” Chand, 23, told PTI from Hyderabad where she is training.says while her parents have not yet raised any objection to her relationship, her eldest sister has threatened to not only expel her from the family but also send her to jail.”My eldest sister kind of wields power and authority in my family. She has thrown out my elder brother from home because she does not like his wife. She has threatened me that same will happen to me. But I am also an adult who has individual freedom. So, I decided to go ahead with this and make it public.”My eldest sister feels that my partner is interested in my property. She has told me that she will send me to jail for having this relationship,” she said.Dutee, who was banned for one year by the international athletics federation in 2014 for having higher testosterone (male sex hormone) level than permissible, hails from Chaka Gopalpur village at Jajpur district of Odisha and she was born to Chakradhar Chand and Akhuji Chand.Dutee won a landmark ‘gender’ case against the IAAF in an appeal to the Court of Arbitration in 2015 and she was allowed to compete after being banned for one year.(With PTI inputs)Also Read | Dutee Chand being blackmailed into marriage by partner, claims sprinter’s sisterAlso Read | I’m so proud of Dutee Chand: Ellen DeGeneres on Indian sprinter’s coming outAlso Read | Ace sprinter Dutee Chand reveals she is in same-sex relationship with ‘soulmate’last_img read more
