According to reports, people in his village are all excited after they heard the news of Sushil Kumar's winning Rs 5 crores on the Amitabh Bachchan's quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati 5. Many of his friends and relatives, who were eagerly waiting to see Sushil, have reportedly been told by his family that due to security reasons nothing is certain about his arrival. His family has been reluctant to disclose the date of his much-awaited arrival from Mumbai.
When asked about the abduction, Sushil's elder brother Sunil does not rule out the possibility. His friends also have same fear. "It is well known that Motihari and its neighbouring areas are notorious for extortion and abduction for ransom. The family's fear is natural," the IANS quotes Sushil's close friend Jitendra Singh as saying.
Sushil Kumar, 27, is a teacher and a computer operator, who earns Rs 6,000 per month. He is married and lives in a big joint family with five brothers, five nieces and a nephew. He is preparing for IAS exams. However, Motihari Police deny the threat of Sushil Kumar's abduction.
