Roorkee, September 22
Much to the delight of the gathering, local wrestler Bhoora drubbed Sachin from Muzaffarnagar in the 25th edition of the Baba Gulab Shah Wrestling Tournament which concluded at Eidgah Ground here today.
The two-day tourney witnessed over 36 wrestlers who came here from various places including Kairana, Haridwar, Purkazi, Benaras and Saharanpur.
The bouts between grapplers Kartik (Roorkee) and Kuldeep, Dilshad Chandosi and Somveer and Sufian Pehalwaan (Muzaffarnagar) and Sachin ended in a draw.
The ‘dangal’ (mud wrestling) is held every year on Eid-ul-Fitr, said organiser Irshad Khalifa.
