The 38-year-old wrestler, Sushil Kumar, a prime suspect in the murder case, and his associate Ajay Bakkarwala were arrested by a team of Special Cell, Delhi Police on May 23 from the Mundka area of the national capital, following which a Delhi Court granted six days of police custody of two-time Olympic medallist wrestler Sushil Kumar.

The Delhi Police's Crime Branch is investigating the case related to the Chhatrasal Stadium brawl on May 4 that led to the alleged murder of Sagar Dhankar here.

Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court will be hearing a petition filed by Sushil Kumar's mother Kamla Devi and a law student today, which seek to make standard rules for reporting in criminal cases by considering the rights of the accused, to put stop to media trial and to stop from "sensational reporting" in the case against the wrestler.
