Sushil Kumar involved in deadly stadium brawl, alleges victim

Two-time Olympic medalist Sushil Kumar said the accused involved in the incident were not known to him; they weren't our wrestlers, he said


Two-time Olympic medalist Sushil Kumar has landed in a fresh controversy involving the death of a wrestler in a brawl outside a Delhi stadium. Delhi Police has confirmed that a person injured in the incident had alleged that the wrestler was involved in the brawl.

The police are conducting multiple raids on the outskirts of Delhi and Haryana to nab the wrestler after he went absconding. The additional DCP (North-West district) Dr Guriqbal Singh Sidhu said, “We have recorded the statement of one of the victims, Sonu Mahal, who made allegations against Sushil Kumar. We are conducting raids to nab Sushil Kumar. During the investigation, we found that the assailants came from outside.”

The incident took place late on Tuesday night when a 24-year-old wrestler was beaten to death and two more were assaulted outside Chhatrasal Stadium in New Delhi’s North-West Delhi’s Model Town area.

The police were alerted about the incident around 1 AM on 5 May after the injured visited Vinayak Hospital. It has also been learnt that the deceased was the son of a Delhi Police Head Constable.

On 4 May, Sagar Rana, who had competed in the 97-kg Greco-Roman category, was beaten to death in a clash involving two groups. Rana was a former junior national champion and is part of the senior national camp. “We have found during investigation that a quarrel had allegedly taken place between Sushil Kumar, Ajay, Prince Dalal, Sonu, Sagar, Amit and others in the area of the stadium,” Sidhu said. Sources said that during the investigation, police also found a recorded video of the incident from the mobile phone of accused Prince Dalal, in which faces of all the attackers can be seen when Sagar and others were being beaten up. “Dalal was arrested from the spot and we seized his cellphone, two double barrel guns along with seven live cartridges of 12 bore from his possession. After investigation, we have found that the guns were registered in the name of one resident of Ashoda village in Haryana’s Jhajjar,” police sources said.

Meanwhile, two-time Olympic medalist Sushil Kumar said that he did not know those accused of the brawl. “They weren’t our wrestlers. It happened late last night. We have informed police officials that some unknown people jumped into our premises and fought. No connection of our stadium with this incident,” Sushil said earlier this week.
