New Delhi: Farmer’s leader Naresh Tikait on Thursday said that people from all Khaps will head toward Delhi on May 7 after Delhi Police allegedly misbehaved with protesting wrestlers.

“Wrestlers protesting at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar were misbehaved by the police, due to which a panchayat was immediately convened at Sauram, the historic Sarvkhap headquarters, in which representatives of the Khaps participated and unanimously decided to march to Delhi on May 7,” Naresh Tikait tweeted.

Earlier, Wrestlers protest slewed late at night on Wednesday when cops allegedly ‘misbehaved’ with athletes protesting at Jantar Mantar in Delhi against the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

“We will return all the medals won at the international level and those given by the government. To what level, will we tolerate the humiliation? We are being humiliated, dragged to the ground,” said Vinesh Phogat.

Talking to media person grappler Bajrang Punia said, “They did not respect that we are Padam Shri Awardee and treated us like that. They were drunk and misbehaved with us.”
