Why was the Budding Wrestler Killed?
Family member of Mukul said that his life was in danger for over six months. They had sent him out of Delhi, and had also demanded security for him against the threat from Jitender Gogi gang.
“He died hours before he was supposed to leave for Sports Authority of India, Sonipat,” said Mukul’s uncle, Pawan, who is a constable posted with Old Police Lines in Delhi.-- Advertisement --
Mukul’s mother died in 2005 of illness and his father died in 2016 due to snakebite. Pawan took care of Mukul and his 20-year-old sister after that.

“I move around with a PSO. But even though I am a policeman, these men don’t fear anything. They go around like vultures and kill anyone they want. Budding wrestler Mukul was only 16. What harm did he cause them that they pumped 18 bullets into that child? He was a budding wrestler and could have represented India,” said Pawan.
Gang Rivalry took the life of a Budding Wrestler
He added that his brother Raju had been killed by Gogi in 2015. “They were rivals since college. But Gogi isn’t stopping after that,” Pawan said.
Elsewhere, family members of gangster Hemraj said he had been disinherited seven years ago when he absconded after committing a crime.
Meanwhile, family members of gangster Hemraj said that he had been disowned by his father’s property seven years back when he planned to abscond after committing a crime.
“Our father can’t hear or speak. He disowned Hemraj hoping that he would take the right path. But that didn’t happen and my parents went into depression,” said Raj, Hemraj’s elder brother.
He didn’t contact them all these years, Raj said.
Himanshu, the other victim, informed Mukul’s family about the incident. He was hit thrice and is in hospital.
