Sushil Kumar taken to Chhatrasal Stadium by Crime Branch, Indian Railways hands him suspension
Indian wrestler Sushil Kumar has embroiled himself in a severe case of murder. He has been arrested by Delhi Police, while the Crime Branch is now handling the case. He has been taken to the Chhatrasal Stadium for questioning, where the murder took place.
Sushil Kumar is considered the pride of Indian wrestling. However, considering the current situation, it seems like his reputation is at stake here after being charged with murder.
A junior wrestler, Sagar Rana, was killed by a group of wrestlers at the Chhatrasal Stadium in Delhi on May 4. While Sushil was one of the accused, he had been absconding ever since, before being arrested by Delhi Police on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the case was handed to Crime Branch on Monday. Sushil was taken to the stadium on Tuesday by CB officials, where he was questioned regarding the chain of events, reports IANS. He was also taken to the stadium's parking lot where the brawl took place, while the police had confiscated five vehicles from outside the stadium on the day of the murder that also contained a double-barrel gun.
During this time, Sushil travelled between Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Haryana before being nabbed by DP after nearly 20 days. Currently, he is in six-day police custody, as ruled by the Delhi Court.
In the meantime, Sushil, employed with Indian Railways, was handed a suspension on Tuesday until further notice. "A case against Sushil Kumar, (Adhoc)JAG/ IRTS, on premature repatriation to Northern Railway from NDMC, in respect of a criminal offence, is under investigation. He was detained in police custody on May 23 for a period exceeding 48 hours," said Deepak Kumar, Northern Railway spokesperson.
"Now, therefore, Sushil Kumar JAG/ (Adhoc) IRTS is deemed to have been suspended with effect from the date of detention, i.e. May 23, 2021, in terms of Rule 5 (2) of (D&A) Rules, 1968 and shall remain under suspension until further orders," he added.
