An Indian athlete arrested for sexually abusing a minor girl in US

An Indian athlete arrested for sexually abusing a minor girl in US

There is no accusation of force, and no other allegations were made.

Khan, 34, is the president of the Snowshoe Federation of India. The charges result of the age differences of the individuals.

Hussain was attempting to obtain a visa in order to compete in the World Snowshoe Championship in upstate NY.

Hussain was arrested Wednesday after Saranac Lake Village police received a report of the alleged incident, which was reported to have happened on Monday.

Hussain and his manager were initially denied US Visa on January 31.

Hussain's lawyer Brian Barrett has to defend his client on charges of sexual abuse of the first degree and endangering the welfare of a child under the penal law of the state of NY.

Hussain and his manager were under the hospitality of the villagers who offered them free accommodation, food and even started a crowdfunding to pay for their travel expense, The Enterprise wrote. He and Khan had planned to leave Saranac Lake later this week, when they were scheduled to fly to New York City and then home to India. Hussain has been cooperating in the case. Officers also said he inappropriately touched the girl over her clothing.

According to the website, he was granted visa following lobbying by officials and residents of the Adirondacks, as well as by Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer. His attorney entered a not-guilty plea for him.

"Based on the limited communications I could have with Hussain, it didn't allow for me to properly evaluate the case and make an informed decision on behalf of my client", Barrett said. "That is how he should be seen in the community and by anyone paying attention in this case", Barrett said.

The Enterprise quoted Hussain's Manager Abid Khan saying that he is innocent.

"I absolutely say it's an unfortunate situation both for the community there in the USA who supported us, and the federation", Mir said.

Muddasir Mir, the president of the SnowShoe Federation of India, confirmed the arrest of Tanveer Hussain and said that the next court hearing is set for Monday. He remanded him to the Essex County Jail in Lewis in lieu of Dollars 5,000 cash bail or USD 10,000 bond.
