After being accuse of rape, Indian tennis player Soumyajit Ghosh married the same girl after his career hit the rocks

Indian table tennis player Soumyajit Ghosh has married his accuser four months after his career was sinking due to serious allegations.

Ghosh attained a career-high 58th in the International Table Tennis Federation rankings.

In March, Indian tennis player Ghosh was accused for rape by an 18-year-old that led to the two-time Olympian and India's youngest ever national champion hitting "rock bottom".

"They say a sportsperson in India has to go through a lot to achieve something. The grind prepares you for the worst but what happened with me four months ago hit me hard and hit me out of nowhere. I did not know how to deal with it," Ghosh told PTI.

"Everyone thought about the girl. That she was young. I was young too. If she was a minor, I was 22 when we started dating. I am still young. Having said that, there is no point looking back. I rather look ahead. Hope my court case is over soon and I get back to training," said the skilful player, who will be "dearly missed" at the upcoming Asian Games in Indonesia.

"It was only during that time, I found out who was actually my well-wishers. I was devastated. I was at the peak of my career, playing for a good club in Germany and then something like this happens.

"I would not name them yet but I survived that phase because of just two people and my parents of course," he said.
