In a bizarre incident, top Indian shooters Gagan Narang, Samresh Jung, Pemba Tamang, Jitu Rai and Raj Chaudhary were forbidden from carrying their weapons in their flight back home from Paris.
Air France who claimed that this was not communicated to them in prior
The shooters reached Paris from New York after the World Cup by Delta Airlines flight, and as per International flying norms the airline should inform airport authorities about the weapons, which Delta Airlines failed to do.
Following this, NRAI (National Rifle Association of India) officials requested the shooters to book Air India tickets who also allegedly refused to issue tickets on the same grounds.
