NRAI orders an inquiry

New Delhi: The National Rifle Association of India on Wednesday ordered an inquiry into the incident involving detention of a coach-cum-manager, attached with an Indian junior team, for allegedly trying to smuggle in prohibited ammunition at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here.

Aharul Hassan Choudhury, who was returning from Finland after a junior shooting championships there, was on Tuesday detained at IGI by customs officials for trying to walk out through the green channel without declaring the ammunition.

“Raninder Singh, president of the NRAI, has taken a very serious view of this and ordered an enquiry into this matter. He has directed that stringent action must be taken against everyone official or shooter, if found guilty,” NRAI secretary Rajiv Bhatia said in a statement. (PTI)
