False posts in India have criticised wrestler Babita Phogat for supposedly attending a protest demanding the arrest of the sport's federation chief over sexual harassment allegations when she had earlier criticised another protest in the country. But Phogat has not attended the wrestler protest as of May 23, 2023 according to one of its organisers, while the photos shared in the posts actually show two other wrestlers.
