According to wrestlers, sexual harassment inquiry panel did not inquire for their opinions

The wrestlers who have accused Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, head of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), of sexual harassment and intimidation regret that the government did not engage them before establishing the oversight committee that would look into the allegations.

A five-member oversight committee, led by boxer MC Mary Kom, will look into the accusations against the WFI president and oversee the day-to-day operations of the sports organization, according to an announcement made by the sports ministry on Monday.

Similar tweets were tweeted by Bajrang Punia, Vinesh Phogat, Sarita Mor, and Sakshi Malik, who held a three-day sit-in protest at Jantar Mantar calling for the ouster of the WFI president. "We were informed that we would be contacted prior to the oversight committee's creation. It's incredibly unfortunate that we weren't contacted, the wrestlers tweeted, tagging Thakur, Amit Shah, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Geeta Phogat, who won bronze at the World Championships, also asked the PM to step in and assist with the problem's resolution. "I ask the country's honorable prime minister because all of our nation's daughters and sisters are looking to you with high hopes and aspirations. Geeta wrote, "It would be a tremendous disaster in the history of the nation if we all sisters and daughters do not get justice.

The other members of the oversight committee are ex-wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt, ex-badminton player Trupti Murgunde, ex-TOPS CEO Rajagopalan, and ex-SAI executive director, teams, Radhica Sreeman.
