International wrestler Sushil Kumar was trying to save himself from a Dubai based gangster Sandeep alias Kala Jathedi. Kumar knew that using an electronic device would do him in, but he didn’t seem very worried about the police. Using a dongle for the internet on his phone despite being cautioned by his well-wishers, he had been trying to contact Jathedi to forgive him, said a source. Even after his arrest by a Special Cell team led by inspector Shiv Kumar on Sunday, Kumar had no regrets about Sagar Dhankad’s murder. He just wanted police to save him from Jathedi’s men in jail, suggesting he had failed to strike a truce in the last two weeks. But why is the Jathedi gang after the decorated wrestler? When Kumar had assaulted Dhankad, he had also thrashed another man named Sonu. With 19 cases of murder, extortion and robbery lodged against him, Sonu is Jathedi’s nephew, who treats him like his son. After the incident, there was more outrage about the assault on Sonu.
