New Delhi: Members of the national shooting team were on Tuesday detained at New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport after they refused to clear their guns with the customs, informed Abhinav Bindra, the country's lone individual Olympic gold medallist, on Twitter.

In a series of tweets, Bindra also expressed disappointment with the treatment that the “country’s ambassadors” were given.

 

He also said that this kind of thing would have never happened with the country's national cricket team.

The national shooting team was reportedly about to leave for Munich to participate in the ISSF Shooting World Cup starting later this month.
