Soon after she made headlines for getting his sex changed, Splitsvilla 8 contestant Gaurav Arora, who is now Gauri made a shocking revelation about being raped at the age of 11.
In an interview with HT, Gauri revealed how he was raped by his peers. He said that when it happened, it was him who was blamed as he dressed like a girl.
”These were boys from my tuition class who were about six or seven years older than me. One day at the park, they got me to stay late and talked to me affectionately. Initially, I was revelling in the attention from the big boys. Maybe it was my innate attraction towards boys, which I am aware of now, but I was very innocent at the time. Before I knew it, they were caressing and kissing then manhandling me and molesting me and I was in pain. I knew this was wrong although I didn’t know exactly how,” she said.
Later, she told her mother about this who warned her against telling her father. But she nevertheless told him and he confronted the boys with the help of Police but he did not get much help. ‘Because I was different, it was as though I had asked for it.’ she adds.
Gauri made the annoncement about his sex change a few days back and became a topic of social media discussions. She also revealed how her family was not supportive of this but since he always knew he was ‘different’.
