This is Mohite’s fifth gold medal of the Games as she had won the gold in the individual event on Sunday before winning three gold medals in the Biathle event of Modern Pentathlon. Her teammate in the gold medal winning team, Parth Mirage, ended his campaign with six medals, including four gold and one silver which he won in Modern Pentathlon.

Kerala swept all the gold medals in the day in Kalarippayattu competition at the Campal Sports Village. Kerala showed their dominance in the oldest traditional martial art form winning all 11 gold medals.

Haryana beat neighbours Punjab in a tense shootout to qualify women’s hockey final. They will face Madhya Pradesh summit clash on Wednesday, who got the better of Jharkhand in another tense shootout.

In the men’s semi-finals Karnataka edged out Maharashtra 5-4 in a nine-goal thriller to book their places in the finals against Haryana who got the better of Uttar Pradesh by a solitary goal.

At the Peddem Multipurpose Indoor Stadium, SSCB pugilists booked their places in the finals of six out of the seven finals in the men’s boxing competition.
