Following boxer’s demise, Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju and Olympic medallist boxer Vijender Singh paid their tributes to the legend.

Kiran Rijju took to social media to pay tribute to Dingko Singh and tweeted that Dinko was one of the finest boxers India has ever produced, his gold medal at 1998 Bangkok Asian Games sparked the boxing chain reaction in India. Extending his condolences to the bereaved family, Rijju said he is deeply saddened by the demise of Shri Dingko Singh.

Last year amid Covid lockdown, Dingko travelled 2,400 km from Delhi to Imphal after his chemotherapy could not go ahead as his jaundice had not subsided. On April 26, Dingko had been airlifted to Delhi due to the efforts of Boxing Federation of India as his scheduled radiotherapy at Delhi’s Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS) was getting delayed.

However, when he had reached back to Imphal, he tested Covid positive and reports of him recovering emerged on July 3.
