Rathore not happy with efforts to locate his gun

New Delhi: Olympic silver medallist Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore yesterday said he was not happy with the efforts to locate his lost Perazzi DB gun and feared it would severely hamper India's chances in next month's World Shooting Championship.
Rathore and his lawyers met Werner Heesen, the General Manager of Passenger Sales in India and South Asia, Lufthansa Airlines, to find an amicable solution to the loss of his gun.
Rathore's gun went missing when he returned from Cairo after winning an Olympic quota place in the ISSF World Cup there and the Lufthansa Airlines authorities had no clue about the loss. The airlines had also lost another Indian Trap shooter Ronjan Birendeep Singh's just days before which has made the incident all the more alarming.
