The Swimming Federation of India (SFI) on Friday banned Goa's sacked swimming coach Surajit Ganguly from all activities related to the sport after a minor girl accused him of rape.

"Based on report filed with the SFI's Goa unit and corroborated by evidence on social media, the SFI condemns this heinous behaviour and has banned this coach from any form of coaching or other activities related to the sport across India.
