Tomar, aged 21, holds a notable position as a center-fire pistol shooter within the country. He became aware of his removal on August 7 when he noticed the absence of his weapon details and name from the list of shooters set to travel to Azerbaijan for the Baku event. The World Championships, which commenced on August 14, are set to conclude on September 1.

Tomar experienced a “minor altercation” while participating in the ISSF World Junior Championships held in Changwon, South Korea in July. As a consequence of this incident, the Sonepat shooter faced exclusion.

You have been informed that you will not be allowed to participate in any competition, till the final decision of the (NRAI) disciplinary committee is taken.

Tomar pleaded with the NRAI to expedite the disciplinary committee hearing saying,
