Speaking exclusively to IANS, Sakshi said she was taken to North Delhi in the Burari area and her medical examination was ongoing.
“I was in Burari and it was difficult to contact other wrestlers. I hope everyone is well. We will go to Jantar Mantar from here and the fight will continue until justice is done,” Sakshi said.
“Everyone saw what happened to us today. No one will ever forget it. Our Prime Minister was busy posing for pictures when us girls got beaten up on the road in Delhi,” said she declared.
A source familiar with the development of the case told IANS that Bajrang Punia was taken to Mayur Vihar police station and Vinesh and her sister Sangeeta Phogat were taken to Kalkaji Thana.
Wrestlers protest: Bajrang, Vinesh and Sakshi detained
IANS tried to contact these wrestlers but all calls went unanswered. Delhi Police have yet to comment on the current whereabouts of the protesting wrestlers.
Earlier, wrestler Vinesh took to social media to say that many supporters, women’s rights activists and ‘Mahila Samman Mahapanchayat’ members were arrested by Delhi police ahead of their planned protest outside the new building of Parliament.
Hours later, the Phogat sisters, Sakshi Malik, Bajrang Punia and other protesting wrestlers were also arrested at the protest site.
Videos shot at Jantar Mantar showed the wrestlers and their supporters trying to protect themselves as police scrambled with them, trying to detain them.
Police reportedly dismantled things at Jantar Mantar and removed all carpets, tents and coolers.
Further details are awaited.
