A delegation of wrestlers, including Olympians Vinesh Phogat, Bajrang Punia and Sakshi Malik, late on Thursday night met Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur at his residence here to discuss the sexual harassment allegations levelled against Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

The four-hour meeting, however, ended without a statement.

The second round of the meeting is scheduled for Friday morning at 8 a.m.

The wrestlers were adamant about the sacking of Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.
