On Thursday, April 18, the Rouse Avenue Court of Delhi reserved an order on the application of former WFI chief, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, for April 26, 2024. The matter pertains to the allegations of sexual harassment against Singh, made by 6 female wrestlers. Singh moved an application seeking the placing on record, the call detail record (CDR) of coach Vijender, in relation to an alleged incident at the WFI office, New Delhi.

He has also sought a direction to look into his own travel documents, because as per Singh, he was not in Delhi on the said date, and was in Serbia on September 7, 2022. After hearing the arguments, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM), Priyanka Rajpoot reserved the order, and asked the concerned parties to file related judgements. The court said that it would first decide on the application of the accused.

The victim said that she had visited the WFI office on September 7, 2022, where she was sexually harassed by Singh, and on the other hand, Singh has claimed that he was not in India on the said date. He has submitted a copy of a page of his passport, carrying an immigration stamp from that date. And while the victim said she had gone to the WFI office with coach Vijender, his CDR is not on record.
