After Changwon ‘violation’, NRAI delays junior shooters’ selection for Asian meet pending enquiry

New Delhi, Sep 4 (PTI) The “disciplinary issues” that marred the Indian shooting team’s campaign at the Junior Worlds in Changwon two months back has resulted in delaying the selection of the squad for the upcoming Asian Championships as the national federation is awaiting clearance from its disciplinary committee.

The committee, headed by National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) president Kalikesh Singhdeo, will submit its report in the next few days and only then the team announcement will be made, federation secretary Rajiv Bhatia told PTI.

The NRAI usually announces the junior contingent for major international competitions along with the senior squad and many shooters became anxious when only the senior contingent was announced on Saturday.

Indian juniors returned home with 17 medals — six gold, six silver and five bronze — from the ISSF Junior World Championships in Changwon in July but there were reports of several “code of conduct violations” during their stay at the team hotel.
