New Delhi, June 2 (MNN) A city court on Wednesday sent Olympian wrestler Sushil Kumar in 14-day judicial custody in connection with the murder of a wrester in the national capital on May 4.

On May 29, the court had extended his police remand by four days, which ended on Wednesday.

Sushil, who had absconded after the murder, was arrested by the Delhi Police along with another co-accused on May 23 from Mundka area of the national capital.

The accused was produced in a Rohini court after his arrest, which sent him in six-day police custody.

On May 18, a Rohini court had rejected Sushil Kumar’s anticipatory bail plea that he had filed earlier in the day in the wake of non-bailable warrants issued against him and others in the murder case of 23-year-old wrestler Sagar Rana at the Chhatrasal Stadium here.

The Delhi Police had announced Rs one lakh award on his arrest, as also issued a Look-Out-Circular (LoC) against him on May 10.
Sushil was on the run since May 4 after an FIR was registered against him at Delhi’s Model Town police station.

Delhi Police had also announced Rs 50,000 for the arrest of co-accused Ajay Kumar, who is a physical education teacher.

On May 4, Sagar, who competed in the 97-kg Greco-Roman category, was beaten to death in a clash between two groups in a parking lot of the stadium. Rana was a former junior national champion and part of the senior national camp.
