New Delhi: The police have now started clamping down on Olympic medalist wrestler Sushil Kumar in the Sagar Dhankhar murder case in Rohtak, Haryana.
However, as soon as the police raid started, Sushil ran away and is reportedly hiding in Uttarakhand. In such a situation, four teams of police have been looking for Sushil and his close friends Ajay, Mohit and Doli and are also taking help from Uttarakhand police for this.
It is known that emerging international wrestler Sagar Dhankar was killed at the Chhatrasal Stadium in Delhi late on Tuesday night. This murder was carried out by about 20 people. In this regard, a murder case has been registered against star wrestler Sushil Kumar and his close associates.
The police say that raids are being conducted in search of Sushil and other accused. After studying CCTV footage in Chhatrasal, only 10 accused have been identified after interrogation of the arrested Prince Dalal and injured wrestlers Amit and Sonu.
Meanwhile, Sushil's mobile location has been traced in Uttarakhand. According to sources, the other accused include Ajay, Mohit and Dali, etc., Sushil's right hand. Sagar Dhankar, originally a resident of Bakheta village in Rohtak, was an emerging wrestler and had competed in international level competitions two or three times. His father is a constable in the Delhi Police and is posted at Begumpura police station.
Sushil's association with gangsters
For the past several years, Sushil Kumar has colluded with big gangsters like Sundar Bhati, Kala Jathedi and Laurence Bishnoi. As a result, Sushil had beaten up wrestler Praveen Rana several years ago at the Indira Gandhi International Stadium in ITO.
In this case, a lawsuit was filed against Sushil and his fellow wrestlers at the IP Estate police station. In the above case also, the police did not arrest Sushil.
According to the police, a few years ago, Sushil took a contract for most of the toll plazas in Delhi, where he had entrusted the responsibility of toll collection to the gangsters.
Questions are being raised on the conduct of the police
Questions are being raised on the functioning of the police in the case of Sagar's murder. The Model Town Police Station has registered a case against the DD entry lodged at the Aadhar police station based on a PCR call.
Sagar's family members allege that this may benefit the accused. Police received a PCR call late at 1.19 pm on Tuesday that bullets were being fired at the Chhatrasal Stadium. It has been said in the FIR that when the police reached the spot, no eyewitnesses were found there. The injured Sagar, Amit and Sonu were reported to be in hospital.
The question arises is that when the three injured were admitted to the hospital, why did the police not go to the hospital and take the statement of the three and file a case on that basis? It took 20 minutes for the police to reach the Sushruta Trauma Center located at Civil Lines near the Chhatrasal Stadium, but the police did not do so.
The police could have recorded the statement of the injured the next morning if they wanted. But a lawsuit was filed seven hours later. Had Sagar's statement been recorded before his death, it would have been strong evidence against the accused.
Sagar's family alleges that the police has done this to save Sushil.
