In the sexual harassment complaint brought by Indian wrestlers, Delhi Police has filed a charge sheet with the court. The complaint brought by the junior wrestler against the former WFI president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh is to be dismissed, according to the police. No corroborating evidence, the police inform the court, has been located. Soon, more specifics.
In the minor’s case in the Delhi Patiala House Court, the police have submitted a Cancellation Report. The next hearing will take place on July 4.
When no supporting evidence is discovered, a Cancellation Report is filed.
Despite the possibility of punishment from the Delhi police, who have taken testimonies from more than 200 people in connection with the case against Singh, Singh has maintained his defiance.
The protesting wrestlers said Singh was using his position to push sexual harassment victims into changing their testimony on Saturday. They also vowed to start their uprising again if firm action wasn’t done against him by today, June 15.
Anurag Thakur, a Union minister, has agreed to the protesting wrestlers’ request that the WFI establish an internal complaints committee that would be led by a woman. The government has also agreed to forbid Singh and his allies from running in the upcoming elections for the wrestling federation.
On July 6, the WFI will hold elections. A charge sheet for sexual harassment and stalking has been filed against WFI president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, according to the Delhi Police.
“In the FIR registered by the wrestlers, after completion of the investigation, we are filing a chargesheet for the offenses under sections 354, 354A, and 354D IPC against accused WFI Chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh before the concerned Hon’ble Court,” the statement read.
However, the police have advised that the minor’s complaint of sexual harassment against Singh be dismissed and have informed the Patiala Court that no corroborating evidence has been discovered.
