WFI Chief Singh “Ready to face an investigation” after Delhi Police files FIR

Under the POCSO Act and various sections of the IPC, the first FIR against the WFI chief Brij Bhushan was filed in connection to accusations made against him by a minor.

Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh claimed his innocence and stated that he is ready to face the investigation after Delhi Police filed FIRs against him in response to claims of sexual harassment made by female wrestlers.

As per the statement of Singh given to media persons, “I am innocent and ready to face the investigation. I am ready to cooperate with the investigative agency. I have full faith in the judiciary and I respect the order of the Supreme Court.”

The POCSO Act and various sections of the I.P.C sections were used to register the first FIR. It was filed in regards to accusations made by a minor.

While DCP Pranav Tayal was quoted by HT as, “the second FIR is registered for carrying out a comprehensive investigation into the complaints tendered by other complainants under relevant sections pertaining to outraging of modesty.”

The protest will go on until Brij Bhushan is jailed, the top wrestlers stated. The wrestlers expressed their mistrust of the Delhi Police when asked about, “We do not trust the Delhi Police. They might file a loose FIR against Brij Bhushan.”

“We have already given enough evidence and if anything else is required, we’ll present it to Supreme Court not to the Delhi police. This is not a fight to register an FIR. This is a fight against one person who already has 85 cases against him,” Vinesh Phogat stated.

Since a minor is one of the alleged victims in the case, the Supreme Court bench ruled that the minor should be given security, but that shouldn’t prevent the Commissioner of Police from conducting a separate assessment of the other complainants’ perceptions of threat.

Six days after the nation’s finest wrestlers, including Sakshi Malik and Bajrang Punia, protested at Jantar Mantar, the most recent development occurred. The claims against Brij Bhushan, who has overseen the wrestling organisation since 2012, were first raised by the wrestlers in January.
