Top wrestlers of the country have opened a front against the Wrestling Federation of India. Wrestler Vinesh Phogat has accused the President of Wrestling Federation of India Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh of sexual harassment. Although Brijbhushan has defended himself.

Female wrestler Vinesh Phogat has made very serious allegations against the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI). He said that I have received death threats from WFI officials. WFI President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh and several coaches in the women's camp sexually assaulted the wrestlers . Brij Bhushan's reply has also come on Phogat's allegations. He said that there was no incident of sexual harassment. If this has happened, I will hang myself. Top wrestlers of the country, including Phogat and Bajrang Punia, sat on a dharna at Jantar Mantar in Delhi against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

Bajrang, Vinesh, Sakshi Malik, Sarita Mor, Sangeeta Phogat, Satyavrat Malik, Jitendra Kinha and Sumit Malik are among the 30 wrestlers sitting on dharna at Jantar Mantar. On Wednesday evening, Punia said that now we are ending the strike. Tomorrow at 10 am, we will start the strike again. Phogat broke down while making serious allegations against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

Read here 10 updates related to this case

1. Bajrang Punia said that wrestlers will not tolerate this dictatorship. WFI exploits wrestlers. People associated with this do not know anything about sports. We want that there should be a change in the management of the Wrestling Federation of India. We hope that the Prime Minister and the Home Minister will support us.

2. Olympic medalist Sakshi Malik said that we are opposing the Wrestling Federation of India. We wrestlers have gathered here.

3. Vinesh Phogat said that after the defeat in the Tokyo Olympics, the WFI president called me a 'false coin'. WFI tortured me mentally. I used to think about ending my life every day. If anything happens to a wrestler, it will be the responsibility of the WFI President.

4. Making serious allegations, Phogat said that coaches are harassing women and some of the federation's favorite coaches misbehave with women coaches as well. They sexually assault girls. WFI President has sexually harassed many girls. They also interfere in our personal life and harass us. They are exploiting us. When we went to the Olympics, we didn't have a physio or a coach. Ever since we raised our voice, we are being threatened.

5. Brijbhushan Sharan Singh, who came to the fore after the allegations, said that has anyone come forward who can say that the Federation harassed any athlete? Did he not have any problem with the Federation for the last 10 years? Issues come to the fore when new rules are brought in.

6. He said that the wrestlers sitting on strike have not participated in any national tournament after the Olympics. There has been no incident of sexual harassment. If something like this has happened, I will hang myself. Sexual harassment allegation is huge. How can I take action when my name has been dragged into it? I am ready to investigate.

7. Sakshi Malik said that all the federations should be removed so that the future of the wrestlers can be secured. A new federation should be formed. Dirt is spread from the lower level. We will talk to the PM and the Home Minister and give all the information. Some cases should be investigated.

8. Phogat said that we are ready to give all the evidence when the High Court directs us. We are also ready to hand over all the evidence to the PM. I know of 10-20 cases of sexual harassment of women wrestlers. Many coaches and referees are involved. We will sit on dharna until the culprits are punished. No athlete will participate in any event.

9. Whereas Punia said that the girls here are from respectable families. If our sisters and daughters are not safe here then we cannot accept it. We demand that the federation be changed. Women wrestlers have made a big allegation today. The WFI president should resign for a fair probe. We do not want to do any politics or involve any politician. We will talk directly to the PM and the Union Home Minister.

10. Delhi Women's Commission chief Swati Maliwal reached Jantar Mantar to support the strike of wrestlers. He said that we have given notice to the Delhi Police and Union Sports Ministry of the Central Government. There should be immediate justice in this case. The president of the Wrestling Federation of India should be arrested immediately and action should be taken against all the coaches whose names are coming to the fore. We want that an FIR should be registered against this man (WFI President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh) and he should be arrested after investigation.
