LAHORE: India won the second Indo-Pak dangal as Satindar Singh defeated Shahid Khoye Wala Pehlwan in Lahore. A huge crowd assembled at the Punjab Stadium to watch the highly-anticipated encounter. After a fairly even contest, Shahid Pehlwan missed a grapple and Satindar immediately pounced, flooring his opponent and pinning down his shoulders to win the match. The second match featuring India’s Jagroop Singh had been called off after the wrestler dislocated his elbow in Gujranwala. The final dangal will be held in Faisalabad.
