Indian wrestlers, including Olympic medallists Bajrang Punia and Sakshi Malik, are protesting against the Wrestling Federation of India President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh over sexual harassment allegations made by women wrestlers.
However, in a late-night video message, Punia claimed that Delhi Police had disconnected the electricity and water supply at the Jantar Mantar protest site.
Meanwhile, Punia also said that the police has erected barricades around the protest area, and were preventing access to food and water. “See this is the pressure on Delhi Police even as the whole country is standing with us,” Punia added on Instagram.
Bajrang Punia also claimed that the cops are not allowing them access to goods they are ordering either.
“Police said that if you want to protest, sleep on the road. What kind of pressure has come on them today, there was no such problem before, this has happened only because of the pressure of the Supreme Court,” said Punia.
He added, “We had ordered some goods but they (police) are not allowing us to bring them here and they are making the person who brought the goods run away by beating them. Until justice is served, we will protest no matter how much the police administration tortures us.”
