Even after a month of continuous protests against the alleged sexual misconduct by the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, top wrestlers, who have once clinched medals for India at the international forums, have been struggling at Jantar Mantar in the national capital. The tensions heightened on Sunday as wrestler Vinesh Phogat, along with her cousin sister Sangeeta Phogat, and other players, made an attempt to breach the security barricades at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was inaugurating the new "temple of democracy", i.e new Parliament building in New Delhi. This led to a clash, with both protesters and police officers engaging in pushing and shoving. Later all wrestlers, including Sakshi Malik, Bajrang Punia and their supporters were detained and removed from the protest site. Earlier in the day, Punia asserted that the Mahapanchayat will take place on Sunday while emphasising the fight for self-respect.
