Earlier, there was news that the visas for the 2 players from Pakistan were approved by the Indian High Commission in Pakistan, however, NRAP has suggested that it isn't the case. Pakistan shooters - Muhammad Khalil Akhtar and Ghulam Mustafa Bashir – were supposed to fly to New Delhi on February 20 before the tournament kicks off on February 23. The National Rifle Association of Pakistan (NRAP) has now suggested that it wouldn't be able to send the players to India due to visa delay. The corresponding Indian body (NRAI), however, claims that the visas have been approved.
Bhatia, secretary general, the NRAI said, "We got a confirmation from the Indian High Commission (Islamabad) that the visas have been granted to the said Pakistani shooters. The National Rifle Association of Pakistan (NRAP), through an email, have acknowledged this in afternoon that they have got confirmation of getting the visas from the Indian High Commission there,"
NRAP told TOI on the matter, suggesting that they were earlier informed that the Indian high commission had granted visas for the shooters. However, a fresh communication came later in the evening suggesting the visa applications were still under process as there was some miscommunication in the matter.
The mail’s copy is sent to NRAI by NRAP has also been marked to the International Sport Shooting Federation (ISSF), highlighting the fact how Pakistan is set to miss out on sending their shooters for the World Cup which will also have effect on the Olympic qualification.
