Hearing On Cognisance Of Chargesheet Against Brij Bhushan Shifted To July 7

Date:

New Delhi: Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court scheduled July 7 for consideration of cognisance of the chargesheet filed by Delhi police in the sexual harassment case against BJP MP and Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) Chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

Earlier, the Court announced that the charge sheet against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh would be reviewed on July 1. But after taking note of the Delhi Police’s statement that a supplementary charge sheet is anticipated due to pending reports from the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) and the Call Detail Record (CDR),

Considering the extensive nature of the charge sheet and the need for careful examination, the court has rescheduled the matter for July 7.

On June 15, the Delhi Police filed a charge sheet that involved MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh and Vinod Tomar in an alleged sexual harassment case reported by female wrestlers. Sections 354, 354D, 345A, and 506 (1) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) are included in the charge sheet, according to Special Public Prosecutor Atul Srivastava.

Earlier, the wrestlers declared their intention to continue their fight for justice in court instead of continuing their demonstrations on the streets.

Following their meeting with Anurag Thakur, the Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports of India, on June 7, the wrestlers temporarily halted their protest. Thakur set a deadline of June 15 for appropriate actions to be taken against Brij Bhushan Singh.

India’s prominent wrestlers, including Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik, and Bajrang Punia, started a sit-in protest at Jantar Mantar in the national capital in January against Singh, which was then followed by a protest in April to draw attention to the lack of action on their complaints against the WFI chief.
