KOLKATA, June 25 (PTI): The mystery over the gender of Asian Games gold medallist Pinki Pramanik continued as the karyotyping test to determine the chromosome pattern could not be held at the state�s referral SSKM Hospital.
An 11-member medical team today conducted various tests on the long-distance runner at the SSKM hospital but the most crucial test to determine the gender still could not be held.
�In our clinical examination, we conducted several tests. But the karyotyping could not be held here. We have the karyotyping facility but only for research purpose,� Tamal Kanti Ghosh, medical superintendent of SSKM Hospital, told PTI today.
Asked where they would send the sample, Ghosh said: �There are facilities in Mumbai, Hyderabad among others. But we are yet to decide on it. We have to submit our reports at the chief judicial magistrate by June 29.�
