Sharad Pawar, the leader of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), stated on Wednesday that it is encouraging that an investigation has started into charges of sexual harassment made against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, the head of the Indian Wrestling Federation.

Speaking to reporters in Aurangabad, Pawar stated that while the government claims it would first conduct an investigation before making a decision, the protesting wrestlers want Singh arrested.

He continued, “It is a matter of satisfaction that the investigation has started.The wrestlers have been protesting against BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh and calling for his capture.

Singh has been accused of sexually harassing certain female wrestlers. The BJP official has refuted the accusations.

Days after they met with Home Minister Amit Shah, the administration has called wrestlers who are opposing Singh to a meeting to discuss their concerns.

Anurag Thakur, the sports minister, stated in a tweet that was sent just after midnight on Tuesday that the government was “willing to have a discussion with the wrestlers on their issues.”
