"I appreciate that people have come forward and spoken about it. I respect it," Sindhu said on the sidelines of a Vodafone event, where the telecom company launched a woman-specific service 'Sakhi'.
Asked if she was aware of any such incident in sports, Sindhu replied, "I don't know about seniors and coaches. As far as I am concerned, I have been on the sports circuit for years and it has been good and fine with me."
