A delegation from the Khap is set to meet with President Droupadi Murmu to demand justice for female wrestlers who have accused BJP MP and Wrestling Federation of India Chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh of sexual abuse. The Khap leaders from Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, and Muzaffarnagar came together in Soram to address the protests by the female wrestlers. They plan to hold another meeting in Kurukshetra on Friday to make additional decisions.
The meeting was held two days after BKU leader Naresh Tikait convinced Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik, and Vinesh Phogat, who have won a total of 45 senior international medals, to postpone immersing their medals in the Ganga in Haridwar and instead give the government five days’ notice.
The female wrestlers have demanded the arrest of Singh, who has governed Indian wrestling for 12 years. Singh has refuted the accusations and retaliated against the wrestlers. The wrestlers have requested that he be detained right away despite the fact that he has been expelled from WFI and is currently on suspension and that two FIRs have been filed against him.
