The country's top wrestlers on Thursday vowed to intensify their protest, saying the government has given them an assurance but not a "satisfactory response". The wrestlers said they will lodge multiple FIRs against Wrestling Federation of India president and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh if the WFI is not disbanded immediately.

The wrestlers who have accused the WFI president of sexual exploitation and intimidation, continued their dharna for the second day as more grapplers joined the sit-in protest in what they called was a fight to give "a new life to Indian wrestling".
