As per reports, the wrestler along with his associates involved in a deadly brawl earlier this month over a dispute with the deceased, who were lodging at his residence near the stadium.
It has also been learnt that the deceased, named Sagar Rana, was the son of a Delhi Police Head Constable.
Sushil had earlier declined from having any role in the incident and stated that the ones involved in the brawl were not known to him.
However, the Olympic medalist has since been absconding forcing the police to issue a Look-out-Circular (LoC) against him.
The other victims involved in the clash also recorded their statements before Delhi Police and claimed that Sushil was involved in the incident.
As per a report in Hindi daily Dainik Jagran, the Olympic medalist is hiding in an ashram in Haridwar.
