‘Options open for me,’ says Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh after Delhi Court’s order in sexual harassment case | More sports News

NEW DELHI: As a Delhi Court on Friday ordered framing of charges against BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh in the sexual harassment case, the former WFI chief welcomed the decision.
Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court earlier today gave the order against Brij Bhuhan in a case lodged by female wrestlers, observing there was ‘sufficient evidence’ against him.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Priyanka Rajpoot ordered framing of charges against Singh, a multiple-term Lok Sabha MP, under sections 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 354A (sexual harassment), and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC.Reacting to the court’s order, Brij Bhushan said, “Today, the court has framed charges, the chargesheet was filed before, which I had protested but the court did not accept. Now, they have framed charges in all cases, except one. I welcome the court’s decision and now, options are open for me”.

The court, however, discharged Singh in a complaint filed by one of the six women wrestlers, citing lack of sufficient evidence in the complaint.
The court will formally frame the charges on May 21.
It also ordered framing of charges against co-accused and former WFI assistant secretary Vinod Tomar in the case.
Another Delhi court is likely to pronounce its order on May 20 on whether to accept a police report seeking cancellation of a sexual harassment complaint filed by a minor wrestler against Brij Bhushan.
