New Delhi: Star Indian gymnast Dipa Karmakar has undergone a knee surgery, ruling her out of the Asian Championships next month.

Karmakar underwent an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery in Mumbai and will not participate in the Thailand meet scheduled from May 18.

The 23-year-old is reportedly being attended to by reknowned Dr Anant Joshi, who has treated Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar in the past.

She had first come into the spotlight after winning a bronze medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, becoming the first Indian female gymnast to do so.
