As per a report in The Tribune, former members of the Indian double trap team Yoginder Pal Singh and Babar Khan were involved in a heated argument regarding the number of rounds that can be taken at one strech.
During the time of the discussion all the range were occupied by the shooters for the National Camp and just one range was free. The lack of availability of range led to an argument between the shooters, which eventually led to a brawl.
The report included that both the shooters have registered a complaint against each other with the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) and their membership has also been terminated.
