Rupam shines

Calcutta: Rupam Banerjee emerged runaway winner in both air rifle open sight and deer shooting categories for men of the 37th state shooting championship which concluded at Space Circle on Sunday.

In air rifle open sight, Rupam’s tally of 342 points was too far away from both his next two challengers B.K. Barua (252) and S.K. Das (238). It was almost the same story in deer shooting, as Rupam’s 84 proved too high than second-placed D. Haldar’s 60 and Sanchay Biswas’ 55.

A product of Srirampore Rifle Club, Rupam was unchallenged in the meet. He also won gold in open category in last year’s nationals at Coimbatore as well as in Ahmedabad nationals in 1999.

Seuli Sadhukhan won the air rifle peep sight and Susmita Debnath was the best in air rifle.
