Sakshi Malik withdrew from the wrestlers’ protest on Monday. She has joined back her position in northern Railway, India Today reported.

The development came two days after the wrestlers met Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday evening.

The meeting was held late on Saturday at Amit Shah’s residence in Delhi and went on till late that night, as the wrestlers raised their demand for Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan’s arrest.

Satyawrat Kadian, the husband of ace grappler Sakshi Malik, said the wrestlers meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah held on Saturday was inconclusive, as they “did not get the reaction they wanted from the Home Minister”.

The meeting with the home minister was held days after the protesting wrestlers went to Haridwar to immerse their medals in the Ganga, but were stopped by farmers’ leader Naresh Tikait. Their return was followed by an ultimatum to the government demanding the arrest of BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh’s arrest before June 9.

Wrestlers have been protesting against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, alleging he sexually harassed women grapplers, including a minor. So far, two FIRs have been lodged against Brij Bhushan, and he has been booked under the POCSO Act.
