The day also witnessed jockeys S. Zervan, Hindu Singh and Nikhil Naidu suffering falls. However, all three escaped unhurt.
Three jockeys — S. Zervan (Duke), Hindu Singh (Avebury) and Nikhil Naidu (Fabiola) — who had fallen off their respective rides at the Calcutta races on Saturday, are learnt to have escaped with minor injuries. Zervan has already taken a flight to Mumbai while Hindu is back home. Naidu is, however, under observation, but there is nothing serious to be concerned about.
