India's top wrestlers, who were recently detained and removed from their protest site at Delhi's Jantar Mantar, have said they will immerse their medals in river Ganga in Haridwar on Tuesday and then sit on an indefinite hunger strike at India Gate.
Wrestlers including Sakshee Malikkh, Bajrang Punia and Sangeeta Phogat, put out a statement on their respective Twitter handles, saying the grapplers would go to Haridwar and immerse their medals in river Ganga at 6 pm.
"These medals are our lives, our souls. There would be no reason to live after immersing them in the Ganga today. We will stage a hunger strike until death at India Gate after that," read the statement in Hindi.
