Sindhu gets her Arjuna Award

New Delhi, Sep 24 : India's rising shuttler P.V. Sindhu, who recently won the World Championship bronze medal, was conferred with the Arjuna Award by sports minister Jitendra Singh here Tuesday.

The minister presented Sindhu a statuette, citation and a cash prize of Rs.5 lakh at the governing body meeting of Sports Authority of India (SAI).

Sindhu could not receive the award from President Pranab Mukherjee during the award ceremony Aug 31 at Rashtrapati Bhavan since she was busy playing the final of the Indian Badminton League (IBL).

The 18-year-old last month became the first female singles player from India to win a bronze medal at the World Championships.
