Shooting camp to resume at Pune from Sept 10

National Rifle Association of India General Secretary Baljit Singh Sethi said the camp venue of Balewadi Sports Complex was on the outskirts of the city, which is the epicentre of the disease in the country.

“We have decided to resume the camp from September 10 because we feel the camp venue is safe being away from the city. We will tell shooters not to venture into the city, which is in the grip of the disease,” Sethi said.

“Some of the shooters will leave for the Asian Clay Pigeon Championships in Almaty, Kazakhstan from the camp which will continue till the September 24,” he said. The NRAI had wound up its month-long camp on August 10 because of swine flu scare in Pune.

India’s top shooters including Gagan Narang and Anjali Bhagwat were among the 100 participants in the camp, which was supposed to run till August 25. With the facility in Delhi not yet ready, there was no other range to shift the camp, forcing the NRAI to shif the camp from Pune then.
