Fight to continue till we get justice

In the latest developments, wrestlers Sakshi Malik, Bajrang Punia, and Vinesh Phogat have dismissed reports suggesting their withdrawal from the protest against former Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Singh. They have stated that their fight for justice will continue until they achieve their goal.

Contrary to earlier reports, the wrestlers clarified that they have resumed their Officer of Special Duty (OSD) positions in the railways while emphasizing that rumors of their withdrawal from the protest are baseless. Sources indicate that they returned to their respective jobs last week.

Both Sakshi and Bajrang took to social media to assert their commitment to the protest. Sakshi clarified in an interview with ANI, “We will keep protesting until we get justice. We will not step back.” She refuted claims of the minor girl involved in the case withdrawing her complaint, calling it false.

Bajrang also expressed his determination in a tweet, dismissing rumors and stating, “The fight will continue till justice is served.”

These prominent wrestlers, including Bajrang, Sakshi, and Vinesh Phogat, have been demanding action against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, the outgoing WFI chief, on charges of sexual harassment.

The decision to continue the protest follows their meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday. It should be noted that earlier this year, the wrestlers faced detention and were manhandled by the Delhi Police during their protest. They subsequently traveled to Haridwar with the intention of discarding their medals in the River Ganga, but ultimately handed them over to farmers’ leaders.

Two FIRs have been registered against Brij Bhushan Singh at the Connaught Place police station, one of which was filed by the father of a minor wrestler under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. These FIRs accuse Singh of offenses such as assault, sexual harassment, and stalking, carrying potential prison terms of two to seven years. Singh has vehemently denied all allegations, stating that he will resign if any single allegation is proven true.
