On Wednesday night, there was commotion at Jantar Mantar when India’s finest wrestlers claimed that police had mistreated and assaulted them. The latest altercation appeared to have begun when the wrestlers attempted to bring bedding to the protest site.
Sakshi Malik was moved to tears after an incident with police, while Vinesh Phogat was seen shouting with officials in a video that emerged from the scene.
Vinesh said that her brother was assaulted by a drunken police officer. Another police officer, she claimed, shoved her and Sangeeta Phogat.
The incident has sparked outrage among the wrestling fraternity, with several wrestlers taking to social media to condemn the police action. The Delhi Police, however, has denied the allegations and said that the situation was brought under control peacefully.
