Protesting wrestlers invited by govt for talks

Protesting wrestlers invited by govt for talks

New Delhi: Following a meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah, the government has invited wrestlers who are protesting against Wrestling Federation of India president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh to discuss their concerns.

Sports Minister Anurag Thakur stated the government was "willing to have a discussion with the wrestlers on their issues" in a tweet sent just after midnight on Tuesday.

"I have once again invited the wrestlers for the same," he said.

The wrestlers have been agitating against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, a BJP MP, and demanded his arrest. Some women wrestlers have accused him of sexually harassing them, charges he has denied.

Earlier, the Delhi Police recorded the statements of Singh's associates and those working at his residence in Uttar Pradesh's Gonda as part of the investigation, officials said.

They also said a minor complainant whose statement was the basis of a case registered against Singh under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act has recorded a fresh statement under the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) section 164.
