Naveen Express, the young raider who orchestrated a brilliant win for Dabang Delhi KC in Pro Kabaddi Season 8, married his childhood friend and life-partner Meenakshi Baliyan in a low-key ceremony in Faridabad. He announced this to the world, breaking many a heart, on his Instagram handle. We wish Naveen Kumar a long and happy partnership.
Naveen Kumar scored a massive 207 points in just 338 raids - mind you, this was a season where Naveen nursed a severe knee injury in mid-season. But stringing Super-10s after Super-10s he carried the veteran Dabang Delhi on his young shoulders to bring home their maiden PKL victory.
Naveen Kumar is from Bhaini School in Haryana which now also boasts of Mohit Goyat, another young raider who shouldered the responsibility for Puneri Paltan.
