Javelin thrower Devendra Jhajharia became the first Indian to clinch two gold medals at the Paralympics after he broke his own world record to clinch the top honours at the Rio Games.
Many, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Sakshi Malik, took to twitter on Wednesday to congratulate Jhajharia on his brilliant feat.
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 has two gold, one silver and one bronze in the ongoing edition of the Games.
