Inadequate evidence is the reason for not taking action against Brij Bhushan says Delhi Police

Amid row of protesting wrestlers and Wrestling Federation of India Chief Brij Bhushan Delhi police stated that they do not have adequate proof against the BJP minister. Wrestlers who are protesting against the WFI chief who has allegedly harassed female athletes sexually are in Haridwar. Furthermore, the wrestlers in protest decided to immerse their medal of honor into the holy ganga. This act of immersion is to signify the sign of protest on 30th May 2023. This action came to hold later in the evening. After Farmer Leader Naresh Tikait intervened and said that “wrestlers should not immerse their medal”. And he asked for a five days’ time.

In addition , Ani reported citing top sources from Delhi Police that Delhi police is lacking sufficient evidence to justify wrestler’s accusation. Delhi Police said “ We don’t have adequate proof against Brij Bhushan to arrest him. There is no supportive evidence to support the wrestler’s statement”. They stated that they will be filing their report after 15 days in court. In the form of chargesheet or a final report.”

Two FIR have been filed against the BJP MP. One under the POCSO (Protection of children from sexual offence act 2012).For sexually accusing a minor girl. The other FIR was filed on the basis of other complaints against Brij Bhushan. For allegedly sexually harassing other female athletes. Sources added that, the section in POCSO mentioned in the FIR will cost the accused an imprisonment of less than 7 years. So the investigation officer couldn’t arrest the BJP minister as demanded by the protestors. They Mentioned that neither is he influencing witnesses nor is he destroying evidence. 

Lastly, as the sensitivity of the case is addressed. Pranav Tayal the Deputy commissioner of Delhi police has been asked by Swati Maliwal to appear in front of the commission on 2nd June with a copy of enquiry of whether the WFI chief is linked with revealing the identity of the minor.
