Wrestlers' Protest continues

All of this action is being done after the Wrestlers' Protest by the top Indian wrestlers like Vinesh Phogat, Bajrang Punia, and Sakshi Malik against the WFI chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. The wrestlers are constantly protesting for the last 15 days and want the WFI chief to be put behind the bar. The wrestlers have accused the WFI chief of sexual molestation and exploitation and have also filed a written complaint before sitting on the protest in the last week of April. An FIR has been filed against the written complaint by the Delhi Police on the order of the Supreme Court.
