Delhi Police on Tuesday arrived at residence of Wrestling Federation of India Chief and BJP MP Brij Bhushan to record statements of 12 people in relation with the allegations of sexual harassment levelled against him.

During the interrogation, the police collected the information related to all the 12 people who gave statements that included their names, identity cards and addresses.

The police even interrogated many supporters of the WFI Chief. All this was done to collect evidence.

Meanwhile, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) has collected total statements of 137 people so far in relation with the ongoing case against Mr Bhushan.

However, thee WFI Chief and the BJP MP Brij Bhushan has firmly denied all the allegations against him and even claimed that he is ready to be hanged if even a single allegation levelled against him is proven.
