Hockey player Varun Kumar has been accused of rape by a girl from Bengaluru. According to the police, the 22-year-old girl said that Varun Kumar had promised to marry her and he had raped her several times in the last 5 years. The woman said that she met Varun Kumar through Instagram in 2019 and she was 17 years old at that time.

The girl has alleged that whenever Varun used to come to SAI Stadium in Bengaluru for a match, he used to have physical relations with her. On the basis of the girl's complaint, an FIR has been registered against Varun Kumar in Bengaluru.

Varun Kumar is from Himachal Pradesh and he lives in Jalandhar, Punjab. “Varun is absconding and police are trying to trace him,” officials said.

After the Indian hockey team won the bronze medal in the Tokyo Olympics, the Himachal Pradesh government had announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh for Varun Kumar.
