New Delhi: Olympic medalist and boxing legend Mary Kom will lead a five-member Oversight Committee which will probe allegations of sexual harassment against Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

The government-appointed Committee will also oversee WFI’s daily operations for the upcoming month.

The other members of the panel include former badminton player and Mission Olympic Cell member Trupti Murgunde, Olympic medal-winning wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt, former TOPS CEO Rajagopalan, and former SAI executive director-teams Radhika Sreeman.

The announcement of the panel was made by Sports Minister Anurag Thakur.
