More glory for Abhijit Baruah

Police constable Abhijit Baruah once again makes Assam proud when set new record of hitting the highest number of punches in a minute on the boxing pad on Thursday.

The 23-year-old cop hit 387 punches in Delhi to break the record he himself set a couple of moths ago in Jorhat. The attempt was made at the Assam Bhawan in the national capital in presence of observers from the Asian Book of Records. Earlier in October last year, he broke record with 329 punches on a boxing pad at an event held in Jorhat stadium. It was recognised by the Asia Book of Records as well as the India Book of Records as the most hits on a boxing pad in a minute. Abhijit also holds the World record of running barefoot  largest distance (156.2 km) in 24 hours.
