“A meeting was held between our representatives and the organisers where they apologised. I have spoken to our team manager T Padmanabhan, who was at the meeting. We have asked for a written apology from them and are currently waiting for the letter,” Bhatia said.

Padmanabhan yesterday wrote to the Indian High Commission in London, complaining that the shooters were insulted by the transport staff of the event.
