Twenty-six-year-old Otari was leading at the halfway stage but his disappointing show at the clean and jerk cost him a better medal as he was taken over by Mohd Hafifi Mansor of Malaysia and Yinka Ayenuwa of Nigeria.
Mansor won the gold with a lift of 305kg (135+170), while Yinka bagged the silver with 301kg (130+171). Otari lifted a total of 296kg (136+160).
Meanwhile, Punam Yadav clinched India's seventh medal in weightlifting at the CWG here as she lifted a total of 202kg to claim a bronze in the women's 63kg category. Punam won bronze in the junior Asian Championship earlier this year.
