Wrestler Murder Case: Sushil Kumar spotted hitting victim with sticks in exclusive video: Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar, who was arrested last week in Sagar Rana murder case has now been spotted hitting the victim with sticks in an exclusive video accessed by News18.
A screengrab of the video shows Sushil Kumar and his friends hitting another wrestler with sticks, moments before the wrestler died of injuries he suffered due to the severe beating.
The visuals show the injured wrestler, Sagar Dhankar, with his back on the ground while Sushil Kumar and three others surround him. Check video below.
According to police, Sushil and his friends thrashed Mr Dhankar and his two friends on May 4 at Delhi’s Chhatrasal Stadium. Following Sushil’s arrest, the police have said he made his friend record the video of the incident to terrorise the wrestling circuit in the city.
“Sushil had asked (his friend) Prince to make that video.
He and his associates thrashed the victims like animals. He wanted to establish his fear in the wrestling community,” the police told a court last week.
The video of Sushil and his friends assaulting the wrestler was made to be shared in the local wrestling circuit and prove their dominance, the police have said.
On May 18, Sushil approached a court in Delhi’s Rohini seeking protection from arrest, claiming that the probe against him was biased and that no injuries caused to the victim were attributable to him. The court, however, dismissed his anticipatory bail plea, saying he was “prima facie the main conspirator” and allegations against him were serious in nature.
