Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda announced a cash award of Rs. 1 crore for grappler Yogeshwar Dutt for clinching a bronze medal at the London Olympics on Saturday.

Earlier, ace shooter Gagan Narang and noted badminton player Saina Nehwal had won bronze medals in their respective disciplines.

Hooda said that Dutt has made the entire nation proud.
