Could the wrestler not present the evidence?
Female wrestler Vinesh Phogat said in a press conference held on January 19 that she has evidence of sexual assault against Brij Bhushan Singh. She will present it when the time comes, but if media reports are to be believed, no concrete evidence has been presented by the wrestlers to the government. For this reason also, Brij Bhushan Singh has not been sacked yet.
Vinesh Phogat had said in the press conference that, ‘Wrestling Association President Brij Bhushan Singh cannot talk to me eye to eye even for two minutes. He has ruined the career of many girls. I have full proof of his black exploits. The pot of their sins is now full.’
What did Brij Bhushan say on the allegations?
On the other hand, Brij Bhushan Singh has termed the allegations leveled against him as completely baseless. The President of the Wrestling Association said that whatever wrestlers are making allegations against me, they should present evidence against me. Brij Bhushan said, ‘All these wrestlers who are opposing me belong to a clan and someone or the other is behind them because of which they are accusing me. They do not have any proof.
On the other hand, continuous talks are going on between the government and the protesting players and efforts are being made to find a middle ground. In such a situation, Brij Bhushan Singh will continue in his post till the investigation is done.
