Director DPES, Dr Mussavir Ahmed, distributed the prizes among the players and said the University has lined up various sports events for specially-abled players in its schedule of sports activities.
Such events will be a regular feature across the University’s campuses, he said.
The para-players expressed their gratitude to the organisers, especially Vice-Chancellor, for providing them a platform and requested the VC to organise more such events in future.
