Sexual harassment allegations false, motivated: Brij Bhushan tells court

New Delhi: Former Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh on Saturday refuted the allegations of sexual harassment levelled against him by six women wrestlers, terming them as “false and motivated”.

The BJP MP’s claims came through his counsel before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Harjeet Singh Jaspal during the hearing on framing of charges in the case.

According to the counsel, one of the complainants in the case was a member of the sexual harassment committee and she never disclosed the alleged incident of 2012 till April 2023.

“She made the allegations as she failed to qualify for the Olympics 2015,” the counsel told the court.

“Every complaint has a reason behind it. Every allegation is false… Almost every complainant changed her statement. Cosmetic and improved statements were given to implicate the accused,” it added.

After hearing part arguments of the defence on charges against Singh, the judge adjourned the matter till October 16.
