Advocate AP Singh, appearing for the complainant, submitted to the court that Jantar Mantar was making hate speeches against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and former Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

He also informed that two complaints were filed at the Sansad Marg Police Station on May 4 and May 12 but no action was taken by the Delhi Police.

After hearing the submissions, City magistrate Anamika sought an ATR from the Delhi Police and listed the matter for further hearing on June 9.

The complainant, Bam Bam Maharaj Nauhatiya, had filed a criminal complaint before the court on Wednesday, seeking registration of an FIR and a high-level investigation into the matter.

In the complaint, he had alleged that the allegations made against Singh are wrong and almost impossible and it is hard to believe that a 66-year-old man harassed the wrestlers.

The complaint also stated that the slogans raised against PM Modi are hate speech.

Another criminal complaint, filed by the victim wrestlers, is currently pending before a city court seeking a judicial inquiry into the FIR filed by the Delhi Police against Singh.

Punia, Malik and Phogat, along with many other wrestlers, have been sitting at Jantar Mantar since April 23, demanding that appropriate action be taken against Singh.
