The infamous scuffle between the followers of Sushil Kumar and Parveen Rana has left the latter's mother, who is suffering from cancer, extremely hurt and emotional. Rana is now vouching to get a revenge from the Olympic medalist by beating him in the ring.

The traumatized wrestler has vowed to trash his arch-rival in the upcoming Pro Wrestling League. Parveen was just getting used to the idea of losing the Commonwealth Games trails to Sushil when an ugly spat, followed by an out-of-the-ring fight broke out between their supporters.

Parveen has earlier filed an FIR against Kumar alleging that the latter's camp beat him and his brother up post the match "for daring to take the ring" against Sushil. The qualified wrestler for 2018 Commonwealth Games has been booked under IPC sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 341 (wrongful restraint).

Following the spat, Rana stated, "My mother is fighting against cancer right now. It's in the third stage but more than that she was really hurt to hear about the way I was attacked immediately after the bout." He added, "I am going to step into the PWL with her in mind, to avenge my unfair defeat."

The ugly fight occurred post the selection trials which was attended by the President of Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), Brij Bhushan Singh Sharan. Supporters of both the wrestlers contesting at the qualifying match locked horns for unverified reasons.

Parveen has claimed that the results were unfair stating, "I felt that the scoring was biased and the bout wasn't judged properly. But that is in the past. I am only concerned about beating Sushil in the ring now."

Rana will appear for the Veer Maratha in PWL and wishes to beat Sushil in the upcoming league. "That was very unfortunate. But that is not going to stop me from preparing for the prestigious league. I want to live up to the faith instilled in me by my team and will give my best to emerge victorious. I believe that winning is all that matters and I am preparing myself to be the best in the league," he said.

The Qutubgarh wrestler idolises Yogeshwar Dutt is willing to leave the incident behind and focus on the future aspect of his wrestling career. "I am feeling fitter this season and I am raring to go against the best, be it a World champion or an Olympic medallist," he concluded.
