Ready To Hang Myself If Allegations Proved: Brij Bhushan


Barabanki (UP): Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh on Wednesday reiterated that he would “hang” himself if allegations of sexual harassment levelled against him by the protesting wrestlers are proven.

“If a single allegation against me is proven, I will hang myself,” the WFI chief said while addressing a public rally in UP’s Barabanki. Singh further took a jibe at wrestlers for announcing to immerse their medals in Ganga as a mark of their protest against him.

“It’s been four months and they want me to be hanged. The government is not hanging me that’s why they gathered at Haridwar on Tuesday and threatened to immerse their medals in the Ganga.

This will not bring the sentence that they want for me, it is all emotional drama,” he said. “If you (wrestlers) have any evidence, present it in the Court and I am ready to accept any punishment,” Singh said.

“Delhi police is investigating the matter. I would be arrested if there’s any truth to the charges (levelled by the wrestlers),” he added.

It may be noted that several ace grapplers, including Bajrang Punia, Vinesh Phogat and Sakshi Malik, have been protesting against the WFI chief accusing him of sexual harassment and demanding his arrest.

The wrestlers, who had been protesting at the Jantar Mantar since April 23 seeking the arrest of Singh, were removed from the site by the Delhi Police on Sunday after they tried to march to the new Parliament building that was inaugurated the same day. They were detained and later let off.
