There is no accusation of force, and no other allegations were made.
Hussain and Abid Khan, president of the Snowshoe Federation of India, initially ran into a roadblock trying to travel to the races. "The charges are a result of the age difference of the individuals", the police said.
Earlier in the year, it was reported that two snowshoers from Kashmir, who were supposed to take part in the 2017 World Snowshoe Championships in NY from February 24-25, had alleged they had been denied visa to the USA due to the "current (US) policy".
According to the Enterprise, Hussain was arrested on Wednesday and accused of inappropriate sexual behavior with an underage girl, contact which allegedly took place on Monday in the village of Saranac Lake.
Hussain's application for a visa was denied last month by U.S. Embassy in New Delhi.

It said "a visibly upset Hussain", with hands shackled and still wearing a maroon World Snowshoe Championships hat, pleaded with the judge not to send him to jail.
