The Indian Weightlifting Federation (IWLF) has suspended a junior lifter, Shubham Verma, for allegedly harassing three sub-junior girls at NIS, Patiala.
According to IWLF secretary general Sahdev Yadav, the National federation took the disciplinary action against Verma, a National junior medallist, after receiving a written complaint from the girls.
“We got a complaint from the girls on Wednesday. They said that Verma used to give calls on their mobile phones in the night. We have removed the junior lifter from the camp and sought an explanation from him,” said Yadav.
