Indian shooters face racism, harassment in UK
Sunday, 16th May 2010
Shades of colonial arrogance reared its ugly head in Dorset when India’s shooters, preparing for the ISSF World Cup on Sunday, were harassed and ill-treated by a bus driver and his supervisor.
Trap champion Manavjit Singh Sandhu said a bus supervisor threatened the team with dire circumstances. Clearly rattled by the second such incident in three days, the manager of the Indian team, M Padmanabhan, filed an official complaint with the Indian High Commissioner in London, seeking his “support and assistance” and making it clear that the incidents are “sure to affect the shooters’ concentration and thus their performance.”
