The Supreme Court, on the 25th of April, asked the Delhi Government and the Delhi Police, to submit a report in the development of the Wrestler’s protes.

Notably, two days after some top Indian wrestlers resumed their protest against the wrestling federation chief’s alleged sexual misconduct. The protest resumed at Jantar Mantar.  In addition, seven women players moved the SC, and requested seeking an urgent hearing on the petition demanding registration of a police case against the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief and BJP MP Brijbhushan Sharan Singh.

Reacting to the petition, the Top Court ordered the redaction of the names of the seven complainant wrestlers from judicial records to suppress identities in the  sexual harassment and fixed April 28 as the date for a hearing.

Seven women wrestlers had moved the top court alleging non-registration of FIR on their sexual harassment charge. The court said, “There are serious allegations made in the petition by wrestlers who have represented India in international games about sexual harassment meted out to them. The matter requires consideration by this court,” a bench headed by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud said. The complaints which were being given in sealed cover shall again be resealed and placed under the petition.”

Meanwhile, the wrestlers, protesting at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar, had yesterday said that they would remain at the protest site till police file an FIR in the case. They claimed the police had refused to file a case even when they submitted their complaint several days ago.

Yesterday, Delhi Police sought a report from the investigation committee set up by the Union Sports Ministry to investigate the allegations and has begun a probe into the fresh complaint by wrestlers.

The elite athletes had called off their protest in January after assurances from the sports ministry, but are back at it as they claim that no action has been taken yet against the WFI chief.

“We will not believe anyone blindly. Last time we were misled. We hope this time there is no politics in this case,” says Vinesh Phogat, the first Indian woman wrestler to win gold at both the Commonwealth and Asian Games.
