Brij Bhushan Singh Gets Bail in Wrestlers’ Sexual Harassment Case

New Delhi: Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court granted bail to Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, BJP MP and former Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief, in a sexual harassment case filed by top women wrestlers. Special MP MLA Judge Harjeet Singh Jaspal issued the order, restricting Singh from leaving the country without permission and prohibiting any threats towards the complainants.

Vinod Tomar, the former additional secretary of WFI, was also granted bail. He had been suspended by the Union Sports Ministry in January following a meeting with protesting wrestlers, but the court granted him a two-day interim bail earlier.

Top Olympians, including Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik, and Bajrang Punia, demanded Singh’s arrest after accusing him of sexual harassment against seven wrestlers, including a minor. The protests ended in June after a chargesheet was filed against Singh, which detailed allegations of inappropriate touching and chasing.

Throughout the case, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh has expressed discontent with media reporting and alleged a media trial in court.

The court’s bail orders have now provided temporary relief to both Singh and Tomar amid ongoing legal proceedings.
