Khatri got the better of Jaegang Kim of South Korea 3-1 to grab the third position in a contest that just over 17 minutes. 

Earlier in the day, Khatri, despite suffering a 1-3 defeat at the hands of Kazakhstan's Taimuraz Tigiyev got a chance to take the bronze home after overcoming Syria's Alkarrad Raja in the repechage bout, at the Huagong Gymnasium.
