Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wife wants to buy either a .32 revolver or a pistol
The Hush Post: Sakshi Dhoni, wife of India’s World Cup-winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (more popularly known as MSD) has applied for a gun licence expressing fears of a threat to her life. Sakshi wants to buy either a .32 revolver or a pistol.
The wife of star India cricketer has applied for an arms licence saying that she stays often alone in their house and also travels often for her personal work, a report in Zee Media said. With these explanations, Sakshi has said these factors make her life a vulnerable to threats and thus she wants to carry a weapon for her safety.
Dhoni’s wife reportedly applied for the licence in the Magistrate’s office which was then sent for police verification. On examination, there were no issues found and the star wife also has no cases against her. The application is reportedly still being processed, a report said.
Earlier, Dhoni himself also had given an application for an arms licence. Initially, his application was turned down, but later he was able to get a licence for a 9 mm pistol. Then, the district administration of Ranchi had also asked for a character certificate from the former Indian captain, before forwarding his application to the home ministry of the state government, the report said.
Notably, in 2017, MS Dhoni also flaunted his shooting skills in Kolkata and proved that his talents were not limited just to the field. The Kolkata Police then lauded the former Indian skipper and wrote on their Facebook page: “The great MS Dhoni takes some time off to practice his shooting skills at our state of the art shooting range this afternoon at Police Training School. His accuracy is breathtaking.”
Appreciating Dhoni’s shooting skills, another Kolkata cop had stated Dhoni was an “extraordinary marksman.”
“It’s great to host Dhoni for the second time. He’s an extraordinary marksman and inspired us all. It’s a state of art shooting range at PTS and Dhoni shot both in the 10m and 25 ranges,” the cop was quoted as saying in the report.
