World wrestling body condemns treatment of wrestlers, threatens to suspend WFI over ‘worrying developments’

By India Today Sports Desk: The world wrestling governing body (UWW) came up with a statement on Tuesday, May 30, condemning the treatment meted out to wrestlers during their protest against former Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. The United World Wrestling said that the governing has taken note of the recent turn of events, expressing its disappointment over the temporary detention of the wrestlers at the protest site – the Jantar Mantar in New Delhi.

The UWW also threatened to suspend the Wrestling Federation of India if it does not provide information about the proposed next elective general assembly. A 45-day deadline to hold the next elective general assembly was set in January after the Sports Ministry suspended the WFI and its activities over the initial protest by the wrestlers.

Some of the biggest names in Indian wrestling, including Olympic medalists Sakshi Malik and Bajrang Punia along with world medalist Vinesh Phogat, have been leading the protest against WFI and its former chief Brij Bhushan over allegations of sexual harassment against the top official, who is also a Member of the Parliament of the ruling party, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

UWW’s statement came hours after the top Indian wrestlers threatened to immerse their medals in river Ganga on Tuesday, 30 May, demanding quick action against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

The wrestlers reached Haridwar’s Har Ki Pauri on Tuesday to immerse their medals in the Ganga, but decided against doing so, giving the government a 5-day ultimatum to take action against the Brij Bhushan.

“The 45-day deadline that was initially set to hold this elective assembly shall be respected. Failing to do so may lead UWW to suspend the federation, thereby forcing the athletes to compete under a neutral flag. It is reminded that UWW already took a measure in this situation by reallocating the Asian Championship planned in New Delhi earlier this year,” UWW said in the statement.


Earlier, the wrestlers were detained at the Jantar Mantar site during their protest. The area was cleared out by the police on Sunday, 28 May. Delhi police issued a statement that the wrestlers wouldn’t be allowed to protest at Jantar Mantar.

“The events of these last days are even more worrying that the wrestlers were arrested and temporarily detained by the police for initiating a march of protest. The site where they had been protesting for more than a month has also been cleared out by the authorities,” UWW said, adding that its officials would meet the protesting wrestlers in the coming days.

“UWW firmly condemns the treatment and detention of the wrestlers. It expresses its disappointment over the lack of results of the investigations so far. UWW urges the relevant authorities to conduct a thorough and impartial investigation into the allegations.”

The athletes have accused Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh of sexually harassing several women wrestlers, including a minor.

Rio Olympic bronze medalist Sakshi Malik, in an emotional note on Twitter, said that the medals have “no meaning” anymore. Of the medals the wrestlers planned to immerse in the Ganga, two are Olympic medals.

Members of minority community express disappointment over Saleem not being appointed as Bengaluru Police Commissioner

Members of minority community express disappointment over Saleem not being appointed as Bengaluru Police Commissioner

The announcement of the name of the new Bengaluru Police Commissioner has left members of the minority community unhappy as they were rooting for M.A. Saleem, Special Commissioner for Traffic, until Tuesday, May 30, to be appointed to the post.

Around a week ago, a delegation comprising elected leaders, Ulemas (religious heads ) and community leaders met Chief Minister Siddaramaiah at his residence and submitted a list of demands for the community, including making Mr. Saleem as Commissioner of Police. The delegation reasoned that 40 years ago, Nizamuddin was the only Muslim commissioner in the history of the city police and making Mr. Saleem as commissioner would be ideal as there will not be any Muslim officers in the near future to contend for the post.

The delegation also reminded him how Mr. Siddaramiah made Mr. Saleem the commissioner of Mysuru city when he was Chief Minister. The delegation said though Mr. Siddaramaiah’s reaction was positive, they were disappointed to see that Mr. Saleem was not made the commissioner when the order came on Tuesday.

The selection of Mr. Dayananda has also raised eyebrows as he served as the State Intelligence Chief for two Chief ministers in the BJP government.

Pengan, who hailed from a village near Aluva in Ernakulam district, has also played notable roles in films including Jan E Man, Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hai, and Minnal Murali.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and the FEFKA (Film Employees Federation of Kerala) Directors Union condoled his demise.

French Open 2023: Alexander Zverev wins first Roland Garros match since ankle injury in 2022 semi-final

By India Today Sports Desk: Twelve months after sustaining a major ankle injury in the semi-finals, Alexander Zverev made a winning return to Roland Garros with a victory over Lloyd Harris in the French Open first round on Tuesday. Zverev earned a 7-6 (6) 7-6 (0) 6-1 first-round win over South African Harris.

After injuring his ankle in a thrilling last-four match against Rafael Nadal last season, the German was forced to retire and did not play again in 2022. Zverev, the third seed last year, is now seeded 22nd after trying to regain his best form since returning to the ATP Tour.

“I was obviously very disappointed with how that tournament ended for me (last year),” Zverev said.

“That’s why I think I appreciate even more when I play in a full stadium and the crowd is behind me. No (not happy with his performance). But I’m happy that I won in three sets. Normally I start with five-set matches so I’m happy to win in three.”

Zverev will face Slovakia’s Alex Molcan in the third round for the sixth consecutive year.

The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday conducted searches at various locations in Jharkhand linked to Congress MLA Pradeep Yadav and others, as part of a money laundering investigation against them, official sources said.

The five-time legislator from the Poraiyahat seat of the State is the Deputy Leader of the Party in the State Assembly.

About a dozen locations linked to the MLA in the State are being raided as part of a probe being conducted against him and others under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), the sources said.

Mr. Yadav, 57, and another party legislator were raided by the Income Tax Department in 2022 as part of a tax evasion probe against some business groups engaged in coal trading and transportation, execution of civil contracts, extraction of iron ore and production of sponge iron in Jharkhand.

The money laundering investigation stems from this tax case, the sources said.
