New Delhi: Delhi Police on Thursday recommended dropping of POCSO charges against BJP MP and outgoing WFI chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh but charged him with sexual harassment and stalking six women wrestlers.
The government had assured the agitating wrestlers including Olympic medallists Bajrang Punia and Sakshi Malik and fellow Olympian Vinesh Phogat that the charge sheet would be filed by June 15, following which they had suspended their stir. They were demanding Singh’s arrest on allegations of sexual harassment against seven wrestlers, including the minor. Singh has denied all the charges.
The police recommended the cancellation of the complaint filed by the minor wrestler against Singh, citing “no corroborative evidence”.
