Delhi Police Will Lodge FIR On Wrestlers’ Complaints Today: Solicitor General To SC

New Delhi: The Delhi Police told the Supreme Court today that it will register an FIR by the end of the day today in the complaint filed by wrestlers alleging sexual harassment by Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

Tushar Mehta, the Solicitor General (SG), presented the argument before a bench of the Supreme Court of India made up of Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha.

The case has been posted by the court for a hearing the following week to address whether one of the victims—a minor—perceives a threat.

The wrestlers are protesting by staging a sit-in at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar and calling for Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh to be held accountable for the claims of sexual harassment made against him.

After the protest originally began in January, the IOA and the government were able to appease the wrestlers by promising to look into their accusations against Sharan and the WFI.

The protesting wrestlers claim that they have learned through media sources that Brij Bhushan Singh has received a clean chit from the panel looking into the charges and that the panel’s report is currently at the Ministry of Sports and is not being made public despite requests.
