Indian athlete Pinki Pramanik: 'Police treated me badly'

Pinki Pramanik, a female Indian athlete arrested on charges of rape and claims that she is actually male, has left jail a day after she was granted bail.

Complaining of ill treatment during her time in custody, she walked out of Dum Dum prison in Calcutta.

Ms Pramanik, who won several medals for India, was arrested in West Bengal state last month after a complaint from her live-in partner, who is a woman.
