Nitin Tomar: A Brief Biography

Nitin Tomar is a professional Indian kabaddi player who plays in the Pro Kabaddi League and is a player of Indian Kabaddi Team. Born on 30 April 1995, he hails from a small village Malakpur near Baraut in Baghpat district of Uttar Pradesh. He was bought back for Rs. 120 lakh by Puneri Paltans using FBM card after a hard bidding by Tamil Thalaivas and UP Yoddha.


Nitin belongs from a family of wrestlers. His two paternal uncles, Ashok and Prahlad Tomar, were international wrestlers which made him naturally inclined to the sport as a child. When he started school at Maharishi Dayanand Public School, options to practice wrestling were limited, and it was then that he first took up kabaddi as an informal school activity.


Tomar works as a Petty Officer at the INS Angre unit of the Indian Navy. He made his debut in the Pro Kabaddi League Season 3 and was a star in his debut season. He then played for Bengal Warriors and Puneri Paltan in the following seasons, respectively.

He went on to score six raid points, his best performance in the tournament, to help the team win the World Cup for the eighth consecutive time.
