Thakur was telling Asian Games champion Vinesh Phogat, Olympic medalist Bajrang Punia. That he would throw both their medals into the Ganges as part of their demand that their federation chief be arrested.

A well-known farmer leader persuaded them to abandon this practice by promising to bring a resolution within five days.

Since April 23, athletes have been camping in New Delhi, demanding action against Wrestling Federation of India president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. Who has denied claims of sexual harassment of female athletes.

An exhortation to trust

“Dear players, trust the Delhi Police inquiry and wait for it,” Thakur said. As directed by the Supreme Court, he has registered an FIR.

He continued by saying that while the investigation is ongoing, it would not be appropriate to take any action that would harm other sports or athletes.

Singh, a lawmaker from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party, has been stripped of his executive powers.

On Wednesday, he again asserted his innocence.

Singh said during a public meeting in his home state of Uttar Pradesh. “I am declaring once again that if I am found guilty of even one charge, I will hang myself,” according to sources.

Throwing medals into the Ganga will not hang Brijbhushan. “If you have evidence, give it to the court. If judge decides to hang me, I will accept it,” Singh added.

The Indian Olympic Association was reminded by United World Wrestling of its promise in April to hold fresh elections for the WFI within 45 days as it blasted the lack of results in the investigation against Singh on Tuesday.
