DCP (licensing) Suvashish Choudhary told The Indian Express: “Besides claiming that his life was under threat, he had submitted a shooter certificate from National Rifle Association of India (NRAI), which comes under Union Sports Ministry. The certificate also mentioned that he had participated in big bore events at the national level.”

“The licence was issued in 2013 on the grounds of protection and under sports quota. It has an all-India permit and is valid till 2018. He got it for seven weapons and currently he possesses three weapons,” he added.

Senior officials of the licensing unit rejected allegations that a politician recommended Rocky for the licence.
