Also, the duo of Deepak Kumar and Mehuli Ghosh won the country its sixth medal of the competition – a bronze in the 10m air rifle mixed team event.

Last December, she won the 10m air pistol event, usurping the much more experienced competitors like Heena Sidhu at the 61st National Shooting Championship in Thiruvananthapuram where she broke Heena's long-standing national record.

She won a staggering 15 medals, including nine gold, during the tournament.

India's medal count stood at three gold and four bronze medals for a total of seven podium finishes.
