The Supreme Court (SC) has closed proceedings on the petition filed by women wrestlers accusing Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh of sexual harassment. The Court has noted that FIRs have been filed against Singh and the complainants have been provided adequate security.

The bench of Chief Justice of India (CJI) D.Y. Chandrachud and Justices P.S. Narasimha and J.B. Pardiwala stated that the plea for registration of a first information report (FIR) has been satisfied. The bench said,

“The purpose of the plea was registration of FIR which is now registered. Apart from registration of FIR this court had passed some other directions to ensure security to complainants. Police has indicated that proper security has been provided to minor complainants and due security has been provided to others. Having regard to the ambit of the case before us, we close the proceedings now.”

Senior advocate Narendar Hooda, representing the petitioner, requested the court not to close the proceedings. He cited concerns that the Delhi police may delay the probe if that is done. He suggested that a judge or a magistrate should monitor the police probe. However, the Supreme Court stated that the petitioners may move “the appropriate jurisdictional magisterial court or the high court”.

CJI Chandrachud said,

“We have confined ourselves to the prayer and that is served and if you are aggrieved by magistrate court order you can approach Delhi high court.”

This decision was made just hours after the wrestlers alleged that a “drunk policeman” manhandled and abused them at the protest site in Jantar Mantar on Wednesday night. The petitioner’s counsel also referred to reports about a scuffle between the Delhi police and the wrestlers, to which SG Mehta denied that the police officers were drunk, saying medical tests showed otherwise.
