Military wrestler Satendra Malik on Tuesday attacked referee Jagbir Singh after he lost 125kg at the CWG Trials final in New Delhi, prompting the National Federation to ban him for life. The Air Force wrestler was ahead 3-0 18 seconds before the end of the break, but Mohit pushed him off the carpet after a “take down.” However, referee Virender Malik did not award Mohit two “take down” points and the wrestler appealed the decision.
The jurors of this match, Satyadev Malik, recanted the decision, citing impartiality. Satyadev belongs to Mokhra village, from which Satender also comes. Next, expert referee Jagbir Singh was asked to consider the challenge. He decided to award three points to Ocean with the help of telecast. After that, the score was 3-3 and it remained the same until the end. Mohit won after securing the last point in the match.
With this decision, Satendra lost his temper and went to the mat for the 57kg match, where the final match was between Ravi Dahia and Aman, where referee Jagbir was also present. Satinder reached Jagbir and started beating him. At first he mistreated Jagbir and then slapped him, he lost his balance and fell to the ground. The 57kg match was then canceled as the incident led to a quarrel inside the KD Jadhav Hall at Indira Gandhi Stadium. Hundreds of fans, officials and participants were amazed to see such a sight.
WFI officials sent Satyendra out of the hall and resumed the match. All this was happening in front of the eyes of WFI President Brij Bhushan Charan Singh as he sat on stage. Vinod Tomar, Assistant Secretary of WFI, said, “We have imposed a lifetime ban on Satendra Malik. This decision was taken by the WFI Chairman.
“The referee for that match will also be called to explain why Mohit was not awarded the points even though he clearly did the ‘take down.’ I didn’t know he would do such a thing,” said Jagbir Singh, shivering. first class) since 2013 why let the situation get out of hand., I had nothing to do with that bout. I competed in the 97kg and 65kg finals. I only made the decision on it when I was asked to do so.
He said, “It’s up to WFI what decision they make against it.” Satyadev Malik told PTI, “I wanted to get away from making the decision, because we live very close to each other. Even in international wrestling if a wrestler is from India, no jury from India can take part in that match.” When asked about the incident, he said, “It’s really unexpected, because Satyendra is usually a very quiet person. ”
