Former wrestler Babita Phogat claimed that fellow oversight committee member Radhica Sreeman snatched the final report on the sexual harassment allegations against WFI Chief from her before she could read the final report. Babita was a member of the government’s probe panel to investigate the allegations made on the WFI Chief for sexually harassing female wrestlers. 

As she quoted to a news channel, “I had read just a few pages of the final report and I had some objections, but Radhica Sreeman came and snatched the report." "Since I belong to the same family (Phogat)that is holding the protest, I can’t read the report,” she further added.

However, dismissing the charges, Radhica said, “She was working on behalf of the chairman (Mary Kom) and told me that the chairman has taken a decision (on signing of the report).” She further stated, “Why will I do that? What benefit I will accrue by doing something like that.  In fact, she read the report 4-5 times and agreed to the findings. Each and every word that was written in the report, was explained to her.” 

"Whatever was written in the report is based on testimonies of all those who appeared in the hearing and everything is video recorded, it can’t be tampered with. If at all I snatched the report from her, why didn’t she write that in her dissent note,” Sreeman added. 

The government had formed an oversight committee, headed by the Olympic medallist MC Mary Kom to look into the matter and allegations made by the players including Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik and Bajrang Punia. The six-member panel includes names like former wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt, former shuttler Trupti Murgunde, Radhica and the ex-CEO of Target Olympic Podium Scheme, Rajesh Rajagopalan.
