The Wrestling Federation of India’s (WFI) emergency general council meeting, scheduled in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh for Sunday, was called off after the Sports Ministry directed it to suspend all ongoing activities owing to the various allegations against the sports body and its president.

The federation president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh has been accused of sexually harassing women wrestlers and working like a dictator by some of the country’s top wrestlers, including Vinesh Phogat, Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik and Ravi Dahiya.

The ministry on Saturday also suspended WFI’s assistant secretary Vinod Tomar, a fallout of the grapplers’ allegations of sexual harassment and corruption against the sports body’s chief.

On Friday, Sharan’s son Prateek had said that his father will issue a statement on allegations of sexual harassment against him after the sports body’s meeting.
