Commenting on the development, the NRAI President Raninder Singh said, “The health of our athletes, coaches and administrative staff are of paramount importance to us. We urge all Olympic bound Shooters and National coaches to refrain from coming to the range until further notice and request they continue with their respective training schedules from their home bases, as best as they can. The senior coaches are also specifically requested to refrain from travel. These are trying times, but we should ensure that we do not lose focus on the larger goal. We wish them all the very best and the pink of health.”
