The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) is yet to appoint the third member of the ad-hoc committee, who will be a retired high court judge responsible for overseeing the conduct of the elections.

Following allegations of sexual harassment and intimidation against the outgoing WFI chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh by the country’s top wrestlers, the Indian Olympic Association (IOA), under the instruction of the Sports Ministry, formed the ad-hoc committee on April 27. The committee’s primary objective is to manage the day-to-day affairs of the federation and facilitate the upcoming elections.

The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) has a total of 25 affiliated units, which include Chandigarh and Delhi among the union territories.
