The Delhi Police informed the Supreme Court on Friday, April 28 that it will file a FIR against MP and Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) President Brij Bhushan Singh in connection with a complaint filed by female wrestlers alleging sexual harassment.
India's Solicitor General Tushar Mehta briefed a bench consisting of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha of the Delhi Police's new position. The bench was hearing a petition filed by women wrestlers demanding action against Brij Bhushan Sharan, who has been protesting in Jantar Mantar for several days.
"We have decided to file a FIR and It will be registered today," Mehta told the bench, which was hearing a petition filed by seven female wrestlers alleging non-registration of a FIR on their sexual harassment allegations against Singh.
Brij Bhushan Singh has been charged with sexual harassment for the second time in four months. The wrestlers staged a protest in January this year, which ended after the government committed to investigate the claims against Brij Bhushan. None of the pledges were kept, the wrestlers alleged when they returned to Delhi's Jantar Mantar in April to demand Brij Bhushan's punishment.
