The troubles of wrestler Sushil Kumar, arrested for the murder of Junior National Wrestler Sagar at Chhatrasal Stadium, have increased. The Delhi Court on Friday extended Sushil’s police custody till June 25.
Sushil’s 9-day custody was over. He was then produced before Metropolitan Magistrate Ritika Jain. The international wrestler faces charges of murder, attempt to murder and kidnapping.
Sushil is being framed: Lawyer
At the same time, Sushil’s lawyer BS Jakhar has questioned the functioning of the police. He has been quoted in the media report as saying that Sushil is being framed. During a fight between two factions at Chhatrasal Stadium, Sushil had gone to convince the wrestlers and bring them to reconciliation.
Jakhar also claimed that none of the injured wrestlers named Sushil before the police reached the spot after the incident. Sushil’s name is not mentioned anywhere in the hospital’s MLC (doctor takes statement of victim before treatment in suspected cases). After the death of one of the injured wrestler Sagar, the police added Sushil’s name and added kidnapping and murder cases against him.
Video of the incident has also surfaced
A video of the murder of junior wrestler Sagar has also surfaced. In this, Olympian Sushil Kumar is seen beating Sagar with a hockey stick along with friends. According to the police, this video was shot by Sushil Kumar himself from his friend’s mobile on the day of the incident, so that he would remain in fear in the wrestling circuit.
In the pictures, 23-year-old Sagar Dhankhar, an injured wrestler, can be seen lying on the ground lying on his back with blood. Accused Sushil Kumar and three others surrounded him. A hockey stick can be seen in everyone’s hand. Sagar died during treatment in the hospital. It is being told that this quarrel took place over a property dispute.
