Former cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu on Monday joined the ongoing wrestlers' protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi against the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief and Bharatiya Janata Party MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh .

Taking to Twitter after the meeting, the former chief of the Congress in Punjab wrote a long post, questioning the "intent" of the Delhi police and asking why the accused has not been arrested yet.

"Cases registered under [the] POCSO Act are non-bailable," Sidhu tweeted. "[W]hy no arrest so far ? Is the law different for the high and mighty? Why does the man in question continue to be in the position of influence and dominance which can make and break anyone's career?"

Stating that with Bhushan at the helm of affairs, "a fair investigation is impossible", Sidhu added, "Nation understands that committee formations are merely delay and deflect [sic]. The only way forward is a meaningful investigation."

"The fight is for the honour, integrity and dignity of every woman," he continued. "A society that doesn't respect women is going downhill. If women of high esteem and achievement who've brought glory to the nation are treated so shabbily, then imagine the fate of those on the streets."
