Crowd march to India Gate in support of protesting wrestlers

The protesting wrestlers on Tuesday decided that the scheduled maha panchayat outside the new Parliament building on May 28 will be held under the leadership of women and youth, and they will henceforth take any big decision on the future course of action.

On Tuesday, thousands of supporters of the wrestlers marched from Jantar Mantar to India Gate under cumbersome security and raised slogans demanding the arrest of former Wrestling Federation of India chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

The protesting grapplers, including Olympic medallists Bajrang Punia and Sakshi Malik and Asian Games gold medallist Vinesh Phogat, have been demanding Brij Bhushan’s arrest alleging that he has sexually harassed several women wrestlers, including a minor. Waving hundreds of tricolours, the supporters, who had arrived from bordering states, echoed the same sentiments as the aggrieved wrestlers and demanded the strictest punishments for Brij Bhushan.
