The protesting wrestlers, including renowned athletes such as Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik, and Bajrang Punia, have accused Singh of sexually harassing women wrestlers, including a minor.

While there are reports suggesting that the minor has withdrawn her complaint, it is important to note that the FIR (First Information Report) under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act against Singh, as well as another FIR based on complaints by six adult women wrestlers, are still in place.

According to sources, several individuals with notable credentials, including a gold medallist in the Commonwealth Games, an international referee, and a coach at the state level, have reportedly supported the allegations made by at least three female wrestlers. The Delhi Police have officially documented the statements of these individuals, as well as approximately 125 potential witnesses from four different states.
