As per Delhi Police sources, Geeta Phogat, India’s first female wrestler to win a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in 2010, was taken into custody at Singhu border along with her husband Pawan Saroha. They were en route to Jantar Mantar to join other wrestlers who have accused BJP MP and Wrestling Federation of India chief Brij Bhushan Saran Singh of sexual harassment.

The Delhi Police have not yet released a statement on the matter.
