New Delhi : Indian wrestlers Sushil Kumar and Praveen Rana's supporters have been reported indulging in brawl during 2018 Commonwealth Games trials. Clash erupted after the double Olympic-medallist Sushil defeated Parveen Rana in one of the bouts.
Things took an ugly turn when Rana, after losing to Sushil in the semi-final clash, claimed that Sushil's supporters beat him and his elder brother "for daring to take the ring" against him.
He also claimed that Sushil Kumar supporters have been giving him death threats and dared him to participate in the upcoming Pro Wrestling League.
Sushil Kumar, on the other hand, has claimed that Rana had bitten him during the fight
"...he bit me but no problem, it might be his tactics to stop me from performing well. All this is a part of sports," a panting Sushil told reporters after the bout.
"Whatever happened here was wrong. I condemn it," Sushil said about the brawl. "There was mutual respect after the fight ended."
