Kerala: The three young female athletes, who survived an attempted suicide bid after alleged harassment by seniors at the SAI Centre in Kerala on Thursday, are stable now even as a medical board was constituted by the Sports Ministry to investigate the incident. “We have constituted a medical board (for the inquiry into the incident) and our priority is to save the lives of those athletes (girls),” Sports Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said on the sidelines of a conference in Delhi.

In a tragic turn of events, a young athlete Aparna Ramabhadran died and three of her colleagues were battling for life after they ate a poison fruit under an apparent suicide pact following alleged harassment by seniors at the Sports Authority of India centre in Kerala. All the four were undergoing training at the Water Sports Centre of the SAI in Alapuzha.
