A handful of shooters such as World Cup medallist Sanjeev Rajput, Manu Bhaker and Anish Bhanwala have been training at the facility for the last few days alongside shotgun marksmen like Sheeraz Sheikh and Mairaj Ahmad Khan since it reopened on July 8. They are likely to continue with their daily practice, adhering to the health and safety protocols.While the shooters residing in places such as Delhi and Haryana resumed training at the range, those living outside the National Capital Region (NCR) were apprehensive, considering the threat travelling could pose. Both Bhaker and Rajput are quota holders for the Tokyo Olympics. A total of 15 Indian shooters have secured quota places for the Olympic Games, postponed to next year due to the raging pandemic. The NRAI had appointed High-Performance Manager and former India shooter Ronak Pandit as the Nodal Officer in charge of overall coordination for hygiene and medical protocols at the camp.
