The visual shows Kumar and his company surrounding and hitting the junior wrestler, who is seen whimpering on the ground. Dhankar succumbed to injuries later.
Till date, Delhi Police has arrested ten people in relation to the case, including several members of the Neeraj Bawana and Kala Asauda gang. Bawana’s henchmen are suspected to have accompanied the Olympian Sushil in the brawl, which led to Dhankar’s death.
