Olympic medallist wrestler Sakshi Malik on Wednesday has challenged WFI chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh to undergo a lie detector Narco Test if he is confident of his innocence after seven grapplers levelled sexual harassment allegations against him.
The protesting wrestlers added that if Singh is associated with their organisation, they will oppose the holding of competitions.
“I challenge WFI president to take a Narco Test. We are also willing to take the test. Let the truth come out in the open, who is culprit and who is not,” Malik said at a press conference in New Delhi.
“We want all competitions to take place under the ad hoc panel of IOA. If WFI chief is involved in any way, we will oppose it,” said another Olympic medallist Bajrang Punia.
To protest the “slow pace of investigation” against Singh, the wrestlers also made the decision to wear black armbands on Thursday. The protesters have been demanding the arrest of Singh for the alleged sexual harassment and intimidation of seven woman wrestlers, including a minor. On April 28, the Delhi Police had lodged two FIRs against the WFI president.
