A day after World Championship medallist Vinesh Phogat expressed her disappointment over the lack of support from other sportspersons against the wrestling federation's chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, javelin star Neeraj Chopra has thrown his weight behind the protesting wrestlers. 

Taking to Twitter, Chopra wrote, “It hurts me to see our athletes on the streets demanding justice. They have worked hard to represent our great nation and make us proud. As a nation, we are responsible for safeguarding the integrity and dignity of every individual, athlete or not (sic).”

“What's happening should never happen. This is a sensitive issue, and must be dealt with in an impartial and transparent manner. Pertaining authorities must take quick action in order to ensure that justice is served (sic), he further added.”

Meanwhile, India's World Cup-winning former captain Kapil Dev also posted a story on his Instagram handle and wrote, “will they ever get justice (sic)?” posting a picture of a press conference featuring Bajrang and Vinesh, among others.
