Bull fight, wrestling tourneys at Chandragiri Festival

Kathmandu, April 10

Chandragiri Municipality and Balami Film Entertainment are jointly organising the bull fight and wrestling tournaments during the Chandragiri Festival slated for April 11-19.

The Bull Fight Tournament will be organised on April 14, 16 and 18, while Wrestling Championship is scheduled for April 15 and 17, informed event coordinator Sameer Balami at a press meet today. Balami informed that a total of six bulls were brought to Kathmandu from Taruka of Nuwakot for the competition.

According to the organisers, the top three bulls will get certificates, while their owners will receive Rs 30,000, Rs 20,000 and Rs 15,000 respectively. “We have included bull fight to promote the event in the country as it has been limited to Nuwakot,” said Balami. The wrestling, however, will be organised only for entertainment with three teams — two in men’s and one in women’s sections — fighting in the festival, which will have stalls for local agricultural products and foods along with concert and health camp.
