Indian hockey player Varun Kumar, honored with the Arjuna award, faces rape accusations under the stringent POCSO act by Bengaluru Police. Allegations claim that Varun sexually assaulted a woman during her minor years. The complainant, now 22, asserts that she encountered Varun via Instagram in 2018, and he subsequently raped her on multiple occasions, promising marriage when she was 17. Their initial meeting reportedly occurred when Varun was training at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) center in Bengaluru. Varun, who received the Arjuna award in 2021, has recently been promoted to the rank of DSP in the Punjab Police.

Varun, previously named as a standby athlete for the Tokyo Olympics representing India, is currently undergoing training alongside the national team in Bhubaneswar in preparation for the upcoming FIH Pro League. The Indian team is set to kick off their campaign against Spain on February 10. Despite rumors suggesting Varun’s disappearance, Hockey India has dismissed such speculations.

In a filed complaint, a woman has accused Varun, a silver medalist in the 2022 Commonwealth Games, of pressuring her to meet after connecting on Instagram. Allegedly, Varun, along with some friends, convinced her to meet, leading to an incident at a hotel in Bengaluru’s Jayanagar in July 2019. The woman claims that Varun engaged in physical relations with her despite being aware of her underage status. She asserts that despite her resistance, Varun assured her of a future together, promising marriage. However, after her father’s death last year, Varun purportedly distanced himself, ceasing to respond to her calls and messages. The woman further claims that Varun threatened to share her photos on social media if she persisted in pressuring him for marriage.
