Indian hockey skipper Bharat Chetri ties knot

Chandigarh: Indian hockey team captain Bharat Chetri today tied the nuptial knot with a city-based girl Geeta in a low-key affair here.

The marriage was solemnised at Hotel Park View this evening in the presence of a restricted number of guests, mainly consisting of family members, a few of his India team-mates and Hockey India officials.

The marriage was an arranged affair and the engagement was held just before the Olympic qualifiers earlier this year.

Geeta is 23 years old and is a graduate.
It is learnt that the goalkeeper decided to keep his marriage a low-key affair after India`s disastrous campaign at the London Olympics, where the eight-time champions finished last in the 12-team men`s hockey competition.

Originally hailing from Darjeeling, Bharat is now settled in Bangalore where he is working with the Canara Bank.

"After marriage I will take a break for 10-12 days and then join training.
