New Delhi: The case against former WFI chief and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, who is accused of sexual harassment by female wrestlers, will be heard in Delhi court again on August 26.
The case, which was supposed to be heard on Saturday, was adjourned for a week because the judge assigned to hear it was on leave.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Harjeet Singh Jaspal had on July 20 granted bail to Singh, along with suspended Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) assistant secretary Vinod Tomar.
The Delhi Police had filed a charge sheet against the six-time MP on June 15 under sections 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 354A (sexual harassment), 354D (stalking) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
