 SFI Himachal Pradesh University leader Harish said, “The wrestlers have been fearless in their fight against the system that protects sexual harassers.  

Students union said that people of the country stand in solidarity with our wrestlers and we will fight with them till they get justice.

 Secretary SFI campus unit Surjeet said, “The country could not ignore the condition of protesters wrestlers under the present regime, where women come to the streets to file cases of sexual harassment, when institutions fail them, they are subjected to more harassment by the police.

  Where will women go to register a protest? Will they have to remain silent forever?” SFI leader questions the establishment for closing their eyes to the crime.
