A number of renowned Indian wrestlers have taken to the streets of New Delhi's Jantar Mantar demanding justice for the #MeToo allegations they have made against the head of the Indian Wrestling Federation, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

This is the second time wrestlers have had to take to the streets, demanding action be taken against the WFI chief for alleged sexual harassment of several female wrestlers. As the protest continued, Indian Golden Boy Neeraj Chopra took to Twitter to request the authorities to act quickly on the issue.

Taking to Twitter, the spear thrower admitted he was heartbroken as he watched wrestlers take to the streets demanding justice. He wrote:

"It hurts me to see our athletes on the streets demanding justice. They have worked hard to represent our great nation and make us proud. As a nation, we are responsible for safeguarding the integrity and dignity of every individual, athlete or not. What's happening should never happen. This is a sensitive issue, and must be dealt with in an impartial and transparent manner.

"Pertaining authorities must take quick action in order to ensure that justice is served."

Ace Indian wrestlers like Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik, Bajrang Punia and many other wrestlers are involved in the protest against the WFI chief.

Earlier, Olympic gold medalist Abhinav Bindra supported the wrestlers and their protest in a moving tweet on Wednesday.

"As athletes, we train hard every day to represent our country on the international stage. It is deeply concerning to see our athletes finding it necessary to protest on the streets regarding the allegations of harassment in the Indian wrestling administration," Bindra tweeted.

"My heart goes out to all those who have been affected. We must ensure that this issue is handled properly, with the athletes' concerns heard and addressed fairly and independently. This incident highlights the crucial need for a proper safeguarding mechanism that can prevent harassment and ensure justice for those affected. We must work towards creating a safe and secure environment for all athletes to thrive in," he added.

During the last four days, the wrestlers slept and trained at the protest center.
