On Friday, Delhi police took a female wrestler to WFI chief Brij Bhushan’s residence to recreate a series of events that led to an alleged crime. Brij Bhushan, the chief of WFI, is allegedly involved in sexual harassment allegation with a female wrestler.

However, WFI chief Brij Bhushan Singh denies the reports and claims nobody came to him.

According to The Hindustan Times, Sangeeta Phagot, a female wrestler, was reportedly taken to the WFI chief’s residence on Friday afternoon to recreate the sequence of events related to sexual harassment allegations.

Sangeeta Phagot was accompanied by the women. Women officers took Sangeeta Phogat to Brij Bhushan’s official apartment in Delhi around 1.30 p.m. They stayed for around 30 minutes. “They asked her to recreate the scene and recall the places where she was harassed, PTI reported.

However, Brij Bhushan Singh rejected the media claims, saying no one approached him.

“I was sleeping in my room. Nobody came to my place,” the BJP MP stated while leaving his residence on Friday.

Soon after the incident, Vinesh Phoget took Twitter as a medium and expressed his views.

Vinesh Phogat tweet:

This is the power of Brijbhushan. He is busy harassing women wrestlers by using his muscle power, political power and running false narratives, so his arrest is necessary. If the police arrests him instead of breaking us, there is hope of justice, otherwise not.

Women wrestlers had gone to the crime site for police investigation, but it was run in the media that they had gone to compromise.
