Kapil Dev, Sehwag, Sania Mirza & Others Support Wrestlers Protest While Top Stars Remain Quiet

For the past couple of days, Indian wrestlers, male and female alike, have gathered at Jantar Mantar staging a protest against the Wrestling Federation of India President Brij Bhushan Singh. He faces serious allegations of sexual harassment by female athletes and the wrestlers’ protest demands his immediate resignation along with appropriate action against his alleged crimes.

For quite some time, India’s leading sportspersons and celebrities remained quiet on the matter, but now they have slowly started to publicly express their concern and support the wrestlers. Yesterday, the Olympic gold medalist Neeraj Chopra extended his support to the wrestlers and demanded strict action be taken in the matter.
