The Delhi high court today refused to accept a plea from Wrestler Sushil Kumar to restrain the media from sensationalizing the trial of his in connection with the murder cases, saying that a plea cannot be filed for someone who is a vigilant person.
This petition has been filed on the behalf of the wrester because it is being claimed that media is defaming Sushil. To this court replied saying, “You cannot file a PIL for an individual. We see no reason to entertain litigation on behalf of a vigilant person.”
Sushil was sent on a 6-day police custody that was for interrogation on this murder of the 23-year-old wrestler. On the intervening night of May 4 and 5, Sushil and his associates allegedly assaulted Sagar Dhankar and his friends. The allegations against Sushil are serious, therefore he has been sent for custody.
Sushil has been on a run for about 3 weeks before he was finally caught in Delhi. And got sent for custody on the same day, i.e. May 23.
The magistrate allowed the police to interrogate him and said, “No one is above law and law treats everyone equally. Our Constitution guarantees the right to life and liberty to all persons subject to exceptions. The allegations against the accused persons are grave in nature.”
The FIR against Sushil Kumar has been registered under section 302, 308, 365, 325, 323, 341, 506 of India Penal Code (IPC) and section 188, 269, 120B, 34 and some other sections of Arms act
