The National Rifle Association of India (NRAI), in it’s annual general body meeting held on Wednesday, has decided to drop para shooting events from all its competitions including the National Shooting Championship.

According to the NRAI, “There is a separate organisation (Paralympic Committee of India) which controls shooting activities including selection of teams for Para World Cups, Para World Championship and Paralympics”.

The decision has come as a big shock to the country’s para shooters as the para events have always been a part of the NRAI competitions for many years. During the last Nationals, around 280 para shooters had participated.
