Controversy of Babita Kumari

In May 2018, Babita and Geeta Phogat, along with their younger siblings Ritu and Sangeeta were ousted from the National camp in Lucknow. The WFI cited their unexplained absence from the camp as reason. WFI president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh told PTI that "'The wrestlers selected for the National camp are expected to physically report to the camp within three days. If they have any problems or issues they should go there and report it to the coaches and find a solution. But Geeta, Babita and others (in all 13) did not do that. They were incommunicado. This is serious indiscipline on their part and the WFI felt it's time to pull the plug. So we have told them to sit at home and enjoy."
