Earlier, on Twitter he uploaded a tweet which read “Will join the “सत्याग्रह” at Jantar Mantar around noon today !!”. Later on, he shared a few pictures sitting with the wrestlers at Jantar Mantar in Delhi.
In his tweet, he questioned why the FIR registration against WFI chief was delayed. He argued the fact that the FIR wasn’t made public, and “the intent is questionable and motive is to protect the accused”. “Why is the officer who delayed the FIR not being tried under Section 166 of IPC as he was duty bound to register an FIR which is mandatory in case of a cognizable offence as per Lalita Kumari vs Govt. of UP judgement of The Hon’ble Supreme Court?” he added.
On April 28, the Delhi police filed two FIRs against Brij Bhushan, six days after the nation’s top wrestlers protested while seated at Jantar Mantar. The first FIR was filed under the POCSO Act and the pertinent IPC sections based on allegations made by a minor, and the second FIR was filed to conduct “comprehensive investigations into the complaints tendered by other complainants under relevant sections pertaining to outraging of modesty.”
On this he commented “Cases registered under POCSO Act are non bailable…..why no arrest so far ? ………… is the law different for the high and mighty? ………. Why does the man in question continue to be in the position of influence and dominance which can make and break anyone’s career? With him at the helm of affairs a fair investigation is impossible……..the nation understands that committee formations are merely delay and deflect…..The only way forward to a meaningful investigation and to uncover the truth is “Custodial Interrogation” , without it a fair investigation is meaningless.”
He ended his tweet with “The fight is for the honour, integrity and dignity of every women…… a society that doesn’t respect women is going downhill …… if women of high esteem and achievement who’ve brought glory to the nation are treated so shabbily then imagine the fate of those on the streets ? …….. जिनके मत से बनती है सरकारें, खेल जगत के चमकते हुए सितारे, सड़को पे दर बदर भटक रहे बेचारे !! …”
He also used a hashtag – #IStandWithMyChampions
On January 18, India’s prominent wrestlers in India mounted an unprecedented protest against BJP Lok Sabha member and Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) head Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. The wrestlers accused Singh of sexual harassment, which sparked the sit-in at Jantar Mantar. The faces of the protest are Rio Olympics bronze medalist Sakshi Malik, two-time world championship medalist Vinesh Phogat, and bronze medalist Bajrang Punia from the Tokyo Olympics. On April 30, they protested once more and demanded that Singh be the subject of a FIR.
