A Delhi court on Saturday extended the police custody of 2-time Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar and his associate Ajay by four days for custodial interrogation in Sagar Rana murder case. The police custody of Sushil was extended after he was produced before the court on expiry of his six days remand granted on May 23.

The court has also directed Delhi Police to conduct a medical examination of Sushil Kumar once every 24 hours. Sushil Kumar's lawyer can meet him in police custody during the 4-day remand. The Delhi Police had sought 7 days custody for the

wrestler and his associate but the Rohini Court only granted them 4 days of custodial interrogation.

"No one is above law and law treats everyone equally. Though the constitution guarantees the right to life and liberty to all persons whether they are accused or not but that right is also subject to certain exceptions. Moreover, the importance of initial days of investigation to unearth the truth also has to be seen. The court is duty-bound to strike a balance between the fairness of the investigation and the rights of the accused," the court order read.
