Bhopal: She brought laurels for the country, yet has no toilet at home.
Indian Hockey goalkeeper Khushboo Khan made the country proud umpteen times, yet she does not have a proper home to live in.
She traveled to different countries to represent the country, but the authorities back home are yet to fulfill the promise of a pucca house.
Khan has been representing the country since 2017. So far, she visited Belgium, Argentina, Australia, Chile, South Africa, Belarus, and Ireland to play for the country. Last year, she represented India in the junior world cup tournament.
Despite playing at the international level, she is struggling to get a pucca house for her family. Her father Shabbir Khan (52) still drives an auto-rickshaw for livelihood.
In 2018, the goalkeeper had requested Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for a lavatory to be made at her home.
“They (veterinary hospital management, which owns the land) broke the lavatory during their construction work. They assured us that they would build us another toilet but did nothing. I have faith that Mamaji (Chouhan) would do something for me,” she said.
Following the request, Bhopal Mayor Alok Sharma visited the house of Khushboo Khan and promised to allot a house.
