The Delhi Police has informed the court that no case of hate speech has been made out against wrestlers, contradicting the claim made by Bam Bam Maharaj in his complaint. The police submitted an action taken report to the Patiala House Court.
Police Findings and Report Submission
In the report filed by the police, it was stated that there is no evidence of hate speech by the wrestlers during their protest at Jantar Mantar. The police based their assessment on a video clip provided by the complainant, Bam Bam Maharaj. The video clip showed some unidentified Sikh protesters raising the slogan “Modi teri kabr khudegi.” However, no recognizable offense of hate speech was found from the contents of the complaint and the video clip.
Wrestlers Not Involved in the Slogan
The report further emphasized that the wrestlers involved in the protest, including Sh. Bajrang Punia, Ms. Vinesh Phogat, and others, were not seen raising any such slogans in the video clip. Consequently, the police requested the court to dismiss the complaint. They assured the court that they would comply with any directions or orders issued.
Next Hearing and Additional Complaints
The Patiala House Court has scheduled the next hearing of the matter for July 7, where arguments will be presented. Additionally, the police mentioned that the two other complaints filed by Bam Bam Maharaj, accusing Brijbhushan Sharan Singh without concrete evidence, were forwarded to the Connaught Place police station. Two First Information Reports (FIRs) have been lodged by the wrestlers at that police station.
