Milkha to skip Sports Dasara inaugural

Ace athlete Milkha Singh is not participating in the inauguration of Sports Dasara at the Chamundi Vihar stadium in the city on October 5, due to back pain.

The 78-year-old ‘Flying Sikh’, who had given his consent to participate in the inauguration, has now postponed his visit as he is on medication.

Superintendent of Police Abhinav Khare, who is also the deputy special officer of the Dasara sports sub-committee, said that Singh is expected to recover within a week. As he will not be able to travel for long hours from Delhi for the inauguration, he may participate in the valedictory or on other days during the sports activities.
