The photos of the alleged incident had prompted Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju to step in and promise stringent action against him. Earlier Rijiju tweeted, “A stringent action will be taken through Sports Authority. Firstly, it's a heinous crime of serious nature so I'll urge the Police to take stringent penal action against the coach urgently”.
This needs your immediate ATTENTION Sir @KirenRijiju . Swimming coach Surajit Ganguly is allegedly molesting 15 year old swimmer. Just saw disturbing video. Can’t share here. pic.twitter.com/NOtG5CdgO7— Vinod Kapri (@vinodkapri) September 4, 2019
I've taken a strong view of the incident. The Goa Swimming Association has terminated the contract of coach Surajit Ganguly. I'm asking the Swimming Federation of India to ensure that this coach is not employed anywhere in India. This applies to all Federations & disciplines. https://t.co/q6H1ixZVsi— Kiren Rijiju (@KirenRijiju) September 5, 2019
