Trouble seems to be brewing hard for Olympian Indian wrestler Sushil Kumar. His latest connection to the Chhatrasal Stadium murder case that led to the death of junior wrestler Sagar Rana has caused quite an uproar in the Indian wrestling and sports community.
As the Crime Branch in Delhi is handling Sushil and his connection to the case, new facts seem to be emerging with each passing day. According to the latest report by India Today, Sushil apparently had contacts with wanted gangster Kala Jathedi.
Recently, an old picture of him has emerged in relation to the case. He is seen sitting with Jathedi’s brother, Pradeep, in the photo. The image was posted on social media in 2018, captioned, “bhaichara @pehalwanji”.
Delhi Police has confirmed that Pradeep had escaped with prize money of ₹7 lakh. Besides, some have also confirmed that Sushil had once travelled to Sonipat and helped Pradeep with a case.
Meanwhile, during interrogations by police, Sushil had stated that he wanted to teach Rana a lesson about not to mess with him and had no intentions of killing him. Furthermore, a discrepancy between the two over a property led to tensions between the two.
