A Delhi Court on Tuesday rejected the anticipatory bail plea moved by wrestler Sushil Kumar accused of murder, attempt to commit culpable homicide in connection with the murder of 23-year-old Sagar Ratna at Chhatrasal Stadium.

Additional Sessions Judge Jagdish Kumar pronounced the order after hearing Senior Advocate Siddharth Luthra appearing on behalf of Satish Kumar and Additional Public Prosecutor Atul Shrivastava for the State.

"In the present case the allegations against thea applicant accused are serious in nature.

The Delhi Police on Monday announced Rs. 1 lakh reward for any information or leads leading to Sushil Kumar's arrest in the murder case. Similarly, a reward of Rs. 50,000 wa announced for information as regards to the co accused Ajay.
