Eight Indian wrestlers, including prominent names like Vinesh Phogat, have moved to the Supreme Court seeking the registration of a First Information Report (FIR) against Brij Bhushan Singh, the president of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI). This move comes after sexual harassment allegations were made against Singh earlier this year.

The wrestlers have been protesting at Jantar Mantar in Delhi, demanding action against Singh. Despite several attempts to register an FIR with the Delhi Police, the wrestlers claim that their efforts have gone in vain. As a result, they have filed a writ petition under Article 32, seeking directions from the Delhi Police Commissioner for the registration of an FIR against the WFI chief.

The petition highlights the delay in registering an FIR against Singh, despite serious sexual charges being levied against him, including the Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences. Phogat, who has been leading the protest, alleged that Singh had harassed female wrestlers for several years.

The Indian government had formed a committee comprising Yogeshwar Dutt and Mary Kom to investigate the matter. Following the allegations, Singh was asked to step down from his position until the investigations were over.
