Renowned Olympic Indian wrestler Sushil Kumar is in severe controversy after getting involved in a murder case. On May 4, he, along with a group of his associates, murdered junior wrestler Sagara Rana at the Chhatrasal Stadium in Delhi.

Although Sushil was absconding ever since, denying the allegation against him, he was arrested this week, as new facts and information regarding the case are emerging every day. Meanwhile, direct proof regarding the matter and its investigation has emerged.

On Friday, a video clip began to surface on social media, where Sushil was seen assaulting the deceased wrestler Rana with a stick, while some other men also took turns to assault the latter. Although a few tried to intervene and stop Sushil from attacking Rana any further, he stood his ground. The video has gone viral on the internet.

Delhi Police has confirmed that Sushil and some of his associates assaulted Rana, along with a couple of the latter's friend. Furthermore, Sushil got the video filmed and intended on terrorising the wrestling community. He also wanted to warn everyone not to mess with him.

Meanwhile, on Friday, the Delhi High Court refrained from restraining Sushil from a media trial. It dismissed a plea filed by a law student, while the court claimed that it is impossible to file a PIL against a vigilant person, reports PTI.

"You cannot file a PIL for an individual. We see no reason to entertain litigation on behalf of a vigilant person," told the court to the law student with the plea, who had claimed the sensationalising the issue in media was harming the wrestler's career and reputation.

"No one is above law and law treats everyone equally. Our Constitution guarantees the right to life and liberty to all persons subject to exceptions. The allegations against the accused persons are grave in nature," told the magistrate.
