New Delhi: Delhi Commission for Woman (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal Wednesday slammed Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, saying that “the man whose place is in jail will make the laws in Parliament now.”
In a question to the Narendra Modi-led central government, Maliwal asked why no action has been taken so far against Brij Bhushan. She asked “how long will the Centre attempt to save a goon like Brij Bhushan.”
“It is too wrong as the man who deserves to be in the jail now will make laws for the nation. Is this how women will be saved and will be taken forward?” said Maliwal.

According to the chargesheet, one complainant had mentioned six places where she felt she was molested by Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.
Maliwal also said, “Delhi police has submitted concrete evidence against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh in court. I want to ask Delhi Police why they did not arrest him, even though they knew he sexually harassed wrestlers.”
DCW’s remarks came after the Delhi Police’s chargesheet that said Brij Bhushan Singh was “liable to be prosecuted and punished for offences” of sexual harassment, molestation and stalking.
A total of 21 witnesses have given their statements against Brij Bhushan Singh. Six of them have given their statements under CRPC 164. Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh has been summoned by the Court on July 18.
