The absence of an Internal Complaints Committee (ICC), as required by the 2013 PoSH Act, was brought up last month by the MC Mary Kom-led committee, which the government established to investigate claims of sexual harassment made by some of the top wrestlers in the country against Wrestling Federation of India president and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

According to the law, the ICC needs to include a minimum of four members – at least half of them women – of whom one shall be an external member, preferably from an NGO or an association that works for women’s empowerment or a person experienced with issues relating to sexual harassment, like a lawyer.

As per a May 4 investigation published by The Indian Express, the wrestling organisation wasn’t the only one breaking the law.

A completely compliant ICC was absent from 16 out of 30 national sports federations, representing the sports in which India competed at the 2018 Asian Games, the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, and the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
