    Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur announced on Friday that the demands of the wrestlers who have been protesting in Delhi have been met. The wrestlers have been sitting on a dharna, or a nonviolent protest, at Jantar Mantar in the national capital since April 23. They have been demanding that the findings of a committee investigating sexual harassment charges against the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brijbhushan Sharan Singh be made public.

    Sharan, who is a BJP MP from Kaiserganj seat in Uttar Pradesh and the president of WFI, has been accused of sexually harassing at least seven female wrestlers, including a minor. Since the protests began, he has been booked in two FIRs filed by the Delhi Police.

    Speaking to reporters in Lucknow, Thakur urged the protestors to let an unbiased probe be completed by Delhi Police. He said, “It is my request to all the sportspersons who are agitating there that whatever their demands were, they were met. Court has also given its directions and they should let an unbiased probe be completed. Delhi police will do ‘doodh ka doodh pani ka pani’ and take strict action as per law.”
