Olympic medalist Wrestler Sushil has filed a case against the former secretary. Two-time Olympic medalist Wrestler Sushil Kumar said that his Olympic preparations lagged behind by a month due to a mutual battle between the School Games Federation of India (SGFI). Because of this, they are not making the national championship. He said, “I will start preparations soon and put my full strength for Olympic qualification”. He hoped that our wrestlers would do well in the Tokyo Olympics. It is known that the national championship will be held in Noida on 23 and 24 January. Apart from this, Bajrang Punia and Vinesh Phogat, who have qualified for the Olympics, will also not enter the Nationals. They are currently training outside the country. Sushil Kumar, Medalist of the 2008 Beijing Olympic and 2012 London Olympics, and former SGFI President Sushil Kumar have filed a fraud case against Rajesh Mishra, former Secretary of the Federation. He said that on 12 November, I received a letter from the Government of India asking for information from him on many issues. But even after being asked many times, the information was not given. When I came to know about this, I got information about the fraud. Scam of crores can be revealed on investigation.
The same player’s money was taken from two places
Sushil Kumar said that the former officials not only took my fake sign but also took money from two places of the same player. That means money was also misappropriated. For example, in addition to taking money from the state of international players, he also took it from the Government of India. How many players did this, it will be revealed only after investigation. He said that I am trying to remove the deficiencies present in the Federation. According to the information, SGFI elections were held recently. A new working committee has been formed in this. However, Sushil has not been given a place in it. However, it is yet to get recognition from the Government of India.
