New Delhi: Olympic gold-medallist Abhinav Bindra Tuesday lashed out at the National Rifles Association of India (NRAI) for not coming to the aid of shooters, who were stranded at the IGI airport after their ammunition was denied clearance for several hours.

Bindra said that the official team manager left the athletes "to fend for themselves".

The Indian shooters were left stranded at the airport here on their return from the World Cup in Cyprus. The team, which included the likes of Chain Singh, Gurpreet Singh and Kynan Chenai, had to wait for more than 10 hours before they were allowed to leave with their ammunition.
