India’s two-time Olympic medalist Sushil Kumar will be catching all the action at the Tokyo Games from inside the jail where he is incarcerated on charges of kidnap and murder. Television has been arranged in the common area of Tihar jail in New Delhi after a request by Kumar’s lawyer to prison authorities. “We have allowed Sushil to watch television in the common area of his ward along with others,” Sandeep Goel, director-general of Delhi prisons, told reporters. “He had made a request through his lawyer for a TV to stay updated about wrestling matches and other happenings.” Read Also: Djokovic faces tough draw at Tokyo Olympics Kumar, 38, was arrested in May after a week-long manhunt over the murder of promising wrestler Sagar Dhankad at a stadium in the capital. Kumar, who is the only Indian to win two individual Olympic medals, has pleaded innocent and accused police of a biased investigation. He won the freestyle wrestling silver at the 2012 London Games after bagging a Bronze at the Beijing Olympics four years earlier. He has also won three Commonwealth Games golds and was awarded India’s highest honor for athletes in 2009. Last month, a Delhi court had dismissed an application by Kumar seeking special food and supplements in prison. Kumar is lodged in a separate cell in Tihar for security reasons. http://nationalsportslink.com.ng Sushil Kumar 0 comment 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappEmail Related Posts Liverpool confirm £60m expansion of the Anfield Road Stand Mike Maignan releases strong statement after Juventus fans racially abused him Canelo Alvarez leaves Caleb Plant with nasty cut and covered in BLOOD...
