The famous wrestling bouts of the Nalwadi fair will begin at the Luhnu Ground here in the town from March 20. The final bouts to decide the “Malli Pehalwan” and “Him Kumar” will be held in front of the chief guest on March 23.
State-level Nalwadi fair Wrestling Sub-Committee convener and Superintendent of Police Kapil Sharma said this here.
He said renowned wrestlers from well-known “akharas” from all parts of the country had been invited to participate and show their worth as handsome cash prizes would be awarded to them. He said more than 500 wrestlers were expected to compete in these bouts.
