Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh has been elected unopposed the president of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI).

In the WFI elections held here on Thursday, I.D. Nanavati was elected the senior vice-president, while Raj Singh was elected the secretary-general.

According to a WFI release, Nanavati polled 58 votes while his rival R.K. Hooda failed to manage a single vote.

Raj Singh got 57 votes against his opponent Kartar Singh's one.

The elections were conducted by returning officer Justice R.C. Chopra, a retired Delhi High Court judge, Union Sports Ministry observer A.K. Patro and Indian Olympic Association observer S.M. Bali.

The High Court, on January 4, had quashed the election of Dushyant Singh as the WFI president.

Later, the court had set aside the election of Brij Bhushan, who on January 29 was elected as the WFI president in controversial circumstances.

The court had also declared the election of secretary general Raj Singh and vice-president Hamza Bin Omar as null and void and ordered fresh elections for the top three posts.
