Arrested wrestler Sushil Kumar had filmed a video of the murder of fellow wrestler to terrorise the wrestling circuit in the capital. News agency ANI quoted Delhi police, as saying, Kumar asked Prince to make the video of him thrashing Sagar Dhankad, a former junior national champion, and his two friends, Sonu and Amit Kumar.  

The two-time Olympic medalist and his associate Ajay, alias Sunil was earlier arrested from Mundka on Sunday. The case relates to the May 4 incident at the stadium in which wrestler Sagar Rana died and two of his friends, Sonu and Amit Kumar, were injured after they were allegedly assaulted by Sushil Kumar and other wrestlers.

Kumar won bronze in 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and silver in 2012 London Olympic Games in 66 kg category. He is also an employee of the Indian Railways, and is posted as an Officer on Special Duty (OSD) at Chhattrasal Stadium.
