New Delhi: Preparing for Tokyo Olympics, shooter Deepak Kumar suffered a jolt on the personal front as the Asian Games silver medallist’s car, a Honda WR-V, was stolen while he was attending the wedding ceremony of his sister-in-law.
The incident took place around 2:30 am in the night on Tuesday as the car was parked outside the VIP Park, JP Tent house in Keshav Puram.
“The response has been a bit slow so far (from the police). See these are matters which can take my focus away from the game. But I am not letting that happen,” Kumar, who secured an Olympic quota in the 10m air rifle event at the Asian Championships last year, told IANS.
“I am preparing for the World Cup (in Delhi from March 15 at the Dr Karni Singh Ranges) and I will continue to do what I have been doing, train harder and give my best,” said the 32-year old. A similar incident had happened with Kumar in 2018 when valuables were stolen from his car in South Delhi’s Ambedkar Nagar. (IANS)
