On January 18, wrestler Vinesh Phogat accused the Wrestling Federation of India Chief and BJP MP, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, of sexually harassing female wrestlers. In a media gathering, she revealed that the harassment of female wrestlers has been happening for many years now. Phogat also staged a protest at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar where other prominent wrestlers including Sakshi Malik, Sangeeta Phogat, Bajrang Punia, and Anshu Malik came forward to support her. However, the WFI Chief has denied the allegations and said that he is willing to be hanged if the allegations are found true. Let’s find out more about the politician here.
