Vinesh Phogat and Bajrang Punia while speaking to the media recently claimed that Bishnoi and Haryana Wrestling Federation general secretary Rakesh not only threatened the victims but also offered them bribes to ‘keep quiet’.
Bishnoi told PTI, “You can check my phone records and the places of my presence in the last few days. There is no truth in these allegations. I don’t even know who the victims are. If it is proved that I am involved in making threat calls, I am ready to be hanged.” He said, “I was in Hisar to attend a wedding with my family when the protest started. Was. How could I go and meet the victim’s family. I am sure someone at the protest site is giving wrong information to the wrestlers. “Bishnoi said,” These wrestlers have known me for years. If someone had said something to him by taking my name, he should have called me for an explanation instead of leveling baseless allegations against me.
Bishnoi said that he had no ill intention towards anyone and that he was being dragged into this as he chose not to stand by the side of the wrestlers at the protest site. The coach said, “Bajrang called me and requested me to join the protest and I politely declined saying that I wanted to remain neutral. Due to my passion for wrestling, I left my CISF job and joined the national camp to help prepare wrestlers. “And I also joined the National Center of Excellence (NCOE) at SAI Center in Sonepat,” he added. Has given results as Greco Roman coach. I stayed there for 16 months. I don’t know why they are dragging me into this matter.
It may be mentioned that Sports Authority of India (SAI) recently called Bishnoi for the national camp but he was asked to leave a day after joining the center in Sonepat. Explaining the incident, Bishnoi said, “SAI had released a list of coaches who would be attending the national camp in January. I joined the camp on January 17 and was also allotted a room but SAI made a new list the next day and my name was removed without giving any reason.
He said, “I have asked SAI officials several times but no one has given me any answer. All they said was that no decision has been taken on my salary as my contract has to be renegotiated. But then why did you put my name in the coach’s list?’ Bishnoi said he felt humiliated after being asked to leave the national camp. He said that in the past also some envious people targeted him and accused him of sexual harassment but he was cleared by an internal inquiry by the CISF.
