Manu Bhaker Allowed To Board Flight After Being Stopped At Delhi Airport
New Delhi: India’s ace shooter Manu Bhaker recently faced some trouble while boarding a flight at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI). The 19-year-old Haryana shooter, who was carrying two weapons and ammunition on her way to Bhopal Shooting Academy, was later allowed to board the flight.
After being stopped at the Indira Gandhi Airport, 19-year-old Manu tweeted her ‘problem’, tagging sports minister Kiren Rijiju and civil aviation minister Hardeep Singh Puri.
Apparently after Rijiju’s intervention, she eventually board the AI 437 flight.
Later, she thanked Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Kiren Rijiju for helping her board the flight.
“Thank you @KirenRijiju sir. Got boarded after strong support from all of you. Thank you India,” Bhaker tweeted.
Thank you every one and all who help me.Especially Who made my boarding possible. Few also think May be one sided and I got undue advantage. Sport ministry bears all my expense spent by me in any form Very clear if I had to pay for any wrong or right reason it’s Govt money.👇 pic.twitter.com/ztU7KH1BwX
