Haryana to give cash award of Rs 4 crore to Deepa Malik

Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday announced a cash reward of Rs four crore for Deepa Malik who scripted history by winning a silver medal in shot put at the 2016 Rio Paralympics Games.

Congratulating Malik, who hails from the state's Sonipat district, he said the award would be given to her under the new sports policy for winning a medal in Paralympics.

"If it was Sakshi Malik who brought the country a first medal in wrestling in Olympics, Deepa has become the first woman athlete from India to win a medal in Paralympics. Our daughters are bringing laurels and we are proud of them," an official statement quoting the Chief Minister said.

Deepa Malik, 45, won the medal in the shot put F-53 final by throwing her personal best of 4.61m at the Olympic Stadium (Engenhao) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
