Bajrang Punia gets bail in criminal defamation case

A Delhi court on Thursday granted bail to wrestler Bajrang Punia in a criminal defamation case filed by coach Naresh Dahiya, who accused the superstar of tarnishing his image with his statement during the protest against Brij Bhushan Federation chief Sharan Singh.

During the wrestlers’ protest, Bajrang had said that Dahiya had no credibility to oppose the agitation since he himself was facing a rape case.

Dahiya then moved the court, which asked Bajrang, who recently suffered defeat at the Asian Games to return without a medal.

“Bajrang sought exemption from physical appearance and missed the first three hearings. He appeared physically today and the court granted him bail. The next date of hearing is March 5,” advocate Rajesh Kumar Rexwal, who represented Dahiya, PTI said after the event.

Dahiya argued in court that he was acquitted in the rape case and Bajrang’s comments gave him a bad name.

Wrestlers Bajrang, Vinesh Phogat and Sakshi Malik led a protest against the WFI chief, alleging that he sexually exploited several women wrestlers.

Singh, who is now facing a court case in the matter, has denied all the charges.
