Governor hails Bhanu for winning bronze in Wushu at Asiad

SRINAGAR: Governor Satya Pal Malik today extended warm felicitations to son of the soil Surya Bhanu Pratap Singh for winning bronze medal in Wushu at the ongoing Asian Games in Jakarta.

Bhanu Pratap Singh, a resident of Muthi in Jammu, registered an emphatic quarterfinal victory over his Philippines rival in the men’s 60-kg category on Tuesday in Indonesia. But he lost the semi-final bout against Erfan Ahangarian of Iran yesterday after suffering an injury.

“We are really proud of his performance in the prestigious sporting event,” Governor said in his felicitation message.

Governor also congratulated Kuldeep Handoo, another son of the soil and coach of the Indian Wushu contingent at the Asian Games. (AGENCIES)
