Wrestler Protest: Asian Games are going to be held from 23rd September to 8th October this year but before that there is a controversy. Wrestler Sakshi Malik has announced today that if this issue is not resolved, we will not participate in the Asian Games. Wrestlers kept on fasting for many days at Jantar Mantar regarding MP Brij Bhushan. After this the controversy had increased a lot. The wrestlers demand that when a case has been registered against the MP under the POCSO Act, then why no arrest has been made so far. Wrestler Sakshi Malik has made it clear today that she will not participate in the game until this dispute is resolved completely.

A few days ago a meeting was held with the wrestlers at the residence of Sports Minister Anurag Thakur. The meeting lasted for about five hours and many issues were discussed in it. The wrestlers demanded in front of the Union Minister that Brij Bhushan Singh should be arrested. She will continue her protest until she is arrested. However, Sports Minister Anurag Thakur has assured the wrestlers that the investigation will be completed by June 15 and appealed not to hold any protest till then. The wrestlers have accepted his words. But there is another screw in this matter.

In this case, the father of the minor player who had accused him of sexual abuse has changed his statement. The father said that Brij Bhushan Singh has not abused my daughter but his behavior was not right. The father said in his statement in the court that a trial was going on for a competition. There was a referee from Delhi and Delhi was its opponent. Our daughter was thrown out in trial. While this is wrong, where there is a player, there is no referee. My daughter was angry after this incident and was also very disappointed. That's why in anger they have accused the MP.

Another new revelation in this matter happened on Thursday. International referee Jagbir Singh said that after 2013, Brijbhushan Sharan Singh showed wrong attitude many times. Jagbir said that I am the referee of UWW since 2007. I have been refereeing since before the birth of these players. I have known Brij Bhushan also since many years. He said that he could not say anything until the girls filed a complaint. I used to feel bad when his behavior made girls feel uncomfortable.
