Sushil Kumar Case Updates: The Delhi High Court is likely to hear today a petition moved by Sushil Kumar’s mother seeking to make standard rules for reporting in criminal cases by considering the rights of accused, to put stop to media trial & to stop from sensational reporting in case against wrestler.
“The excessive publicity of the accused or the suspect in the media before the trial in a court of law, either incriminates a fair trial or results in characterizing the accused or suspect as the one who has certainly committed the crime, this amounts to undue interference with the “administration of justice”, which calls for proceedings against media for contempt of court,” the plea has said.
Sushil Kumar Case Updates: The Olympic wrestler was interrogated for close to four hours on Monday after he was sent in six day police custody. He and his associate Ajay Kumar were arrested from Delhi’s Mundka area on Sunday morning for the alleged murder of 23-year-old wrestler Sagar Rana, who died after the fight at the Chhatrasal Stadium on May 4.
The case has been shifted to the crime branch of Delhi Police to investigate from every angle. The police is trying to find out if Sushil had any relations with gangsters, who may have helped him prior to his arrest. The Crime Branch team is gathering evidence from the crime scene with the help of forensic experts.

Sushil, according to the police, even told a guy named Prince to make a video of the incident and wanted it to go viral in his community so that nobody else dares to offend the two-time Olympic medalist ever again.
