During a recent press conference, Supriya Srinate, a spokesperson for the Congress party, raised questions about the ruling BJP government’s support for the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief, Brij Bhushan. The Delhi Rouse Avenue court summoned Singh after finding sufficient evidence to proceed with the case against him. Singh has been instructed to appear in court on July 18. Initially, seven wrestlers, including a minor, filed a complaint against Singh for alleged misconduct. However, the minor complainant later withdrew her statement before a district magistrate. These events unfolded following a sit-in protest at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar, led by prominent wrestlers such as Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik, and Bajrang Punia, who demanded Singh’s arrest. The protest began on April 23 but ended when the police detained the wrestlers for violating law and order by attempting to organize a gathering in front of the new parliament on its inaugural day, May 28. The wrestlers suspended their protest after meeting with Union Minister Anurag Thakur, who assured them that the charge sheet in the case would be filed by June 15.
