In another closely-fought Pool A match, Chandigarh Police beat Madhya Pradesh Police 4-2. Although it was MP Police who got off to a strong start with two back-to-back goals via Suchit Kujur (7’) and Toran Prasad (10’) early in the game, Chandigarh Police made a strong comeback in the second quarter with Navneet Bakshi's 26th minute goal. He scored another goal in the 40th minute while Amit Kumar scored twice (31’, 60’) to ensure their team made amends to their 0-10 loss on Thursday to champions CRPF Jalandhar.
