Who is Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh?

The accused, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, was born in 1957 in the Gonda district of UP and has been the MP from the same place for the last 6 consecutive terms. The 66-year-old veteran has predominantly been the center of several controversies and hence has been in the news for such exploits.

Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh controversy

The present Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief has been accused of sexual assaults on multiple counts for several months now. Some of India’s top wrestlers who have won Olympic medals apart from those who have been crowned World Champions previously, have accused him of sexually harassing female athletes and have been protesting for several months now in demand of his arrest and eventual conviction. The WFI chief, however, has vehemently denied the charges.

Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh has responded to the allegations saying that the same is politically motivated and that he would “hang himself even if a single allegation is proved” against him. A 2021 video that has resurfaced on social media in recent months shows him hitting a young under-15 wrestler on stage for “misbehaving”. And last year, he bragged on camera that he had murdered a man who had killed his friend Ravinder Singh. “Whatever people say, let me tell you that I have committed one murder,” he told the reporter. “I put a rifle to his back and shot him. He died.” The present BJP Government has been tight-lipped in the whole matter as yet.
