The problems are endless for Olympic medalist Sushil Kumar, who is accused in the murder of wrestler Sagar Rana at the Chhatrasal Stadium in Delhi.
A Delhi court on Tuesday denied bail to Olympic medallist wrestler Sushil Kumar in the Chhatrasal Stadium murder case.
Additional Sessions Judge Shivaji Anand refused to grant relief to Kumar after hearing the arguments of both the prosecution and defense at length.
Kumar had sought relief from the court asserting that police built a false case against him and presented a "guilty image" of him.
The 38-year-old wrestler was arrested on May 23 and is lodged in jail since June 2, 2021.
Kumar, along with others, allegedly assaulted former junior national wrestling champion Sagar Dhankar and his friends at the stadium in May over an alleged property dispute.
Dhankar succumbed to the injuries later. According to the post-mortem report, he died due to the “cerebral damage resulting from blunt object impact”.
Two of Sagar's friends were injured in a fight that took place at the stadium on the middle night of May 4-5 due to a property dispute in the Model Town area of Delhi.
The accused were identified as Bhupender (38), Mohit (22), Gulab (24), residents of Haryana's Jhajjar district and Manjeet (29), a native of Rohtak district, they said.
They are active members of the Kala Asauda and Neeraj Bawana gangs and were arrested from Delhi’s Kanjhawala area on Tuesday night.
