Brij Bhushan Sharan, president of the Wrestling Federation Of India, slapped a wrestler on the stage. Many people have demanded the resignation of Brij Bhushan Sharan. During the age verification, the wrestler turned out to be above 15 years of permitted age, thus he was barred from participating in the competition. The young wrestler argued for a long time with the technical officials. He directly met Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh to insist to play in this tournament. As the argument escalated, Brij Bhushan Sharan slapped the young wrestler on the stage itself, which triggered a row.
