NEW DELHI, May 28, 2023 (TBINN)

Soon after detaining the protesting wrestlers, Delhi Police cleared the site of their over-month-long sit-in at Jantar Mantar and said they will not be allowed to return there.

While women detainees were released later in the evening, Opposition parties slammed the Central Government over the alleged manhandling of wrestlers. Former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi said that the arrogant king is crushing the voice of people on the streets as the coronation is over and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said it is shameful our champions are treated in this manner.

The wrestlers, who resumed their agitation against Wrestling Federation of India (W.F.I.) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh on April 23, 2023 demanding his arrest for alleged sexual harassment of several women grapplers, called for a Women Mahapanchayat today for which they did not have permission.

Chaotic scenes were witnessed at the dharna site at Jantar Mantar, barely three kilometres from where the new Parliament Building was inaugurated by Prime Minister, as protesters and police personnel shoved and pushed each other when the Phogat sisters, Sakshi Malik and others tried to breach the barricades.
