In a dramatic move, the youngest of the seven women wrestlers who had accused BJP MP and Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh of sexual harassment and harassment has dropped her claims. This development comes after the father of the minors denied such claims.
According to a report in the Indian Express, the 17-year-old gave a fresh statement to a magistrate under Section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code, which will be admissible as evidence in court. Now the court must decide whether the case should continue.
Earlier, the minor had lodged an FIR stating that Brij Bhushan Singh touched her inappropriately while taking pictures and stalking her. He also testified in front of the judge on May 10 and described the incident in detail. Singh was thus charged under the POCSO Act.
For now, the wrestlers have gone to work and will decide on the next step on June 9. After being stopped for marching to the new parliament, they were detained by the police. After that they went to Haridwar to immerse their medals in the Ganga and were stopped by Rakesh Tikait.
