Celebrated two-time Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar was arrested by Delhi Police yesterday (22 May) near Jalandhar for alleged links with the murder of late wrestler Sagar Dhankar, reports Economic Times.

Having been on the run for over a fortnight, Kumar was arrested by Delhi Police along with his associate Ajay Kumar. This comes soon after Delhi Police’s announced a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh for any feedback on him last week.

On bygone 4 May, 23-years-old Dhankar was killed due to the injuries he had sustained during a brawl that had broken out between two groups of wrestlers at Delhi’s iconic Chhatarsal Stadium. Kumar had been absconding ever since.

Following this, a Delhi court issued a non-bailable warrant against Kumar, and Delhi Police issued a lookout notice against him. It was noted that Kumar was posted at the Chhatarsal Stadium as an Officer on Special Duty (OSD).

Kumar had won a bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and a silver medal in the 2012 London Olympics.
