Kabaddi stars Ajay Thakur, Fazel Atrachali and other players urge fans to stay home to fight coronavirus pandemic

The Kabbadi stars took to Instagram to spread the message and inspire people to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

With sporting action coming to a halt across the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many athletes have been forced to stay at home and away from sports. In these times, athletes are doing their bit – be it donating to charities or urging people to stay at home during the ongoing crisis.

Former India kabaddi captain Ajay Thakur is still in action, albeit off the kabaddi mat. Thakur, who is a DSP with the Himachal Pradesh police, is on the frontlines patrolling localities in Bilaspur and urging citizens to stay at home. The Padma Shri and Arjuna Awardee shared posts of himself on duty on his Instagram account and fans were quick to appreciate his service.

In one post, Thakur asked people to stay at home and save lives.

U Mumba and Iran team captain Fazel Atrachali also posted a message on Instagram asking people to stay home and stay safe to counter the COVID-19 pandemic.

 U Mumba and Indian Kabaddi star Sandeep Narwal also took to Instagram and addressed the youngsters of the country. In a video, Narwal asked the youth of the country to resist the urge of stepping outside their houses to stop the spread of COVID-19 and urged them to practice yoga and other exercises at home itself.
