New Delhi: Done with the World Cup, shooters Ravi Kumar and Deepak Kumar Wednesday said they have been asked to report by their employers, the Indian Air Force, a routine practice but they expect instructions on protocol in view of the escalating tension between India and Pakistan.
Security has been heightened in major Indian cities after the IAF bombed terrorist camps across the Line of Control (LOC) in retaliation for the Pulwama terror attack on February 14. “We have been called by the secretary of Air Force Sports Control Board.
This is the general practice after every tournament as they ask us about our plans. We will be issued instructions and we will follow the protocol in the current situation,” said Ravi, an ISSF World Cup bronze-medallist. Though he is part of the ground staff, Ravi said as a Junior Warrant Officer (JWO), his job is to “look after five-six posts”.
