New Delhi: Indian weightlifters began their campaign on a positive note bagging a silver and a bronze medal on the opening day of the 20th Women and 27th Men's Asian Junior Championships being held at Bishkek, Krygyzstan.

The silver came through women with Saikhom Mirabai Chanu finishing second in the 48kg division by lifting a total of 165kg.

The bronze was clinched by Apurba Chetia in the 56kg category.

Even though Chetia's Snatch lift was the same as the eventual silver-medallist, he had to settle for silver on the account of his heavier body weight. He lifted a total of 230kg.

India is being represented by a 13-strong team in the event consisting of six men and seven women.
