    Olympic gold medallist Abhinav Bindra has voiced support for top Indian wrestlers currently staging protest at Jantar Mantar in the national capital against wrestling body chief and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh over charges of sexual harassment for the second time this year.

    Bindra, who has always voiced his opinion in favour of distressed sportspersons, took to the micro-blogging site to term the incident ‘deeply concerning’.

    “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.

    He further added,”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.”
