    Rajasthan Rifle Association (RRA) coach has been booked for allegedly raping and molesting five young female shooters over the past few years, according to the police.

    The complaint was filed at the Malviya Nagar police station in Jaipur.

    The complaint said the coach raped two players and molested three others over the years. During the Green Cup tournament held in Italy earlier this year, the coach had allegedly forced one of the players to share a room with him, police said.

    A case was registered on Sunday under IPC sections 376 (rape), 354 (molestation), 506 (criminal intimidation), 504 (intentional insult), 509 (sexual harassment) and sections of the POCSO (Protection of Children Against Sexual Offences) Act as one of the girls is a minor, according to the police.

    The police also added that the coach used to send them indecent messages on WhatsApp and forced them to come to the shooting range alone for practice sessions.

    One of the five complainants levelled the rape allegation in the FIR so far, while four others alleged sexual harassment while exerting career-oriented pressure on the athletes.
