Olympic Gymnast Dipa Karmakar Returns BMW Presented By Sachin Tendulkar!

Find out why!

Dipa Karmakar, India’s first woman gymnast made India proud on the world stage at the Rio Olympics. Honoring the champions, cricket legend, Sachin Tendulkar had presented PV Sindhu, her coach, Gopichand, Sakshi Malki and Dipa Karmakar each with luxurious BMW cars. The gifts were given by V. Chamundeswaranath, President of theHyderabad Badminton Association only last month.

Now, Dipa Karmakar, who hails from Agartala in Tripura, has decided to return the luxury car. Explaining Dipa's decision, her coach, Bisheswar Nandi cited maintenance reasons, he said, 'It wasn't Dipa's decision. Rather it was a collective decision taken by her family and me. There are two main reasons behind it. First, there is no BMW service center in Agartala and secondly, the roads are not suitable to drive a posh car such as this.'
