The crime scene was further inspected by forensic experts of FSL, Rohini,” he said.

They were not our wrestlers, claimed Sushil Kumar

After the incident, Sushil Kumar had told news agency ANI that the group that got into a fight with them was not their wrestlers. “We have informed police officials that some unknown people jump into our premises and fought. No connection of our stadium with this incident,” he said.

He was a former junior national champion and part of the senior national camp.

Sushil Kumar’s career as a wrestler
