How PM Narendra Modi, Abhinav Bindra reacted after Devendra Jhajharia won historic gold

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday hailed paralympian Devendra Jhajharia for winning a historic gold medal in javelin throw.

Devendra, who won his previous gold in the 2004 Athens Games, bettered his own world record to finish on top in the men's F46 event.

PM Modi took to social micro-blogging site Twitter to congratulate Jhajharia.

India's only individual Olympic gold medalist Abhinav Bindra too joined the PM in lauding Dev. 

Devendra, whose previous best was 62.15 metres (achieved in the 2004 Games), improved the mark with an attempt of 63.97 metres at the Olympic Stadium (Engenhao).

India now have two gold, one silver and one bronze in the ongoing edition of the Games.
