Bajrang Punia Denies Rumors of Withdrawing from Protest, Smells Conspiracy

New Delhi: Olympic medalist Bajrang Punia has reaffirmed his commitment to fighting for justice and dismissed rumours of withdrawing from the wrestlers’ protest. Punia emphasized that none of the wrestlers, including himself, have backed down and they will continue their struggle until justice is served.

Similarly, wrestler Sakshi Malik clarified that she has not retreated from the protest and refuted false reports suggesting that women wrestlers have withdrawn their FIR (First Information Report). Malik emphasized the need to refrain from spreading misinformation.

Furthermore, Malik mentioned a meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, describing it as a normal conversation. She reiterated the wrestlers’ sole demand, which is the arrest of Brij Bhushan Singh, the outgoing chief of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), who is facing allegations of sexual harassment from seven wrestlers, including a minor. Malik emphasized that their protest will persist until justice is achieved, while also stating that she has resumed her role as an Office on Special Duty (OSD) in Railways.

Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik, and Vinesh Phogat, fellow Olympians and World Championship medalists, have been protesting against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, demanding his arrest in light of the sexual harassment allegations brought forth by seven wrestlers, including a minor. It is important to note that all three athletes have returned to work as Office on Special Duty (Northern Railways) since the previous week.
