As for the electronic evidence, the police have a video of Dhankar and his accomplices on the crime spot, which was recovered from the possession of one of the accused Prince. There is also CCTV footage of the accused coming and going there. Also, the mobile location of all the accused suggests they were at the crime spot at the time of the incident.
In their chargesheet, police have mentioned that “encroachment of property”, “threat to eliminate” and supremacy were the reasons for the dispute which resulted in Sagar Dhankar’s death.
Sushil Kumar and his associates allegedly assaulted Dhankar and two of his friends—Sonu Mahal and Amit Kumar—over a property dispute, at the stadium on the intervening night of 4-5 May.
