New Delhi, June 07, 2023: A woman should head India’s wrestling federation, the wrestlers who have been protesting against its current chief, who is accused of sexual harassment, told Sports Minister Anurag Thakur on Wednesday at a meeting where they listed five demands.



Bajrang Punia and Sakshee Malikkh held talks today with Sports Minister Anurag Thakur at his home after his late-night invite on Twitter.

It was the second meeting between the wrestlers and the government in five days. The wrestlers met with Home Minister Amit Shah late on Saturday over their demand for action against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, who has been accused of sexual harassment by seven women wrestlers.

The wrestlers made five demands to the minister, including free and fair elections to the Wrestling Federation of India and the appointment of a woman chief. They also said Brij Bhushan Singh or his family members cannot be part of the WFI.

The wrestlers also want a police case filed against them over their protest last month on the day India’s new parliament building was inaugurated be scrapped. They have reiterated their demand for the arrest of Brij Bhushan Singh.
