Later in the day, Sagar overpowered Seychelles’ Keddy Evans Agnes in the men’s +92kg competition. The 22-year-old from Haryana notched up a 5-0 win in the super heavyweight quarter-final clash. Nikhat Zareen (50kg), Nitu Ganghas (48kg) and Mohammed Hussamudin (57kg) have also reached the semi-finals in their respective categories.
