Wrestling Federation Suspended Over 'Hasty Decisions' Day After Election

The Sports Ministry of India has suspended newly-formed Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) body led by Sanjay Singh. Singh, a close aide of BJP MP and former WFI chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, was elected the new president of the wrestling body on Thursday. Sanjay Singh won 40 out of 47 votes in a sweeping victory over Anita Sheoran, a Commonwealth Games gold medallist who was backed by top wrestlers who had taken to the streets earlier over sexual harassment allegations against Brij Bhushan.
