Wrestler Murder Case: Delhi Police announce ‘reward of Rs. 1 Lakh on any info regarding Sushil Kumar’
Earlier a Delhi court on Saturday issued non-bailable warrants against two-time Olympic medallist and six others in connection with the case. This came days after a lookout notice was issued against Kumar in the same case. A senior police officer had said, “We moved an application before the court to issue a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against wrestler Sushil Kumar and six others in the case, and as per request, the application was approved and accordingly NBWs have been issued against them.” A lookout notice was issued late on Sunday evening.
The police have already recorded the statements of the victims allegedly involved in the brawl. The clash had taken place over vacating a flat in the Model Town area, police said.
Kumar, who has been named in the FIR, is on the run, and efforts are on to trace him, a senior officer had said earlier, adding that raids were being conducted in the Delhi-NCR region and neighbouring States to nab him.
The victims alleged that Kumar was present at the spot when the clash took place. The wrestler who died was 23 years old. He and two of his friends were brutally assaulted allegedly by other wrestlers inside the Chhatrasal Stadium in the northern part of the city on Tuesday night.
According to the police, the brawl involved Kumar, Ajay, Prince Dalal, Sonu, Sagar, Amit and others. A case was registered under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Arms Act at the Model Town Police Station. Dalal (24), a resident of Jhajjar in Haryana, was held in the case, police had said.
