State Congress Spokesman, Arvind Malaviya told reporters that newspapers today carried a picture showing Chouhan shooting from a pistol.

Malaviya said that a revolver had been given to the Chief Minister at the time of the elections and he should clarify the name of the person who owned the pistol from which he fired at "Shastra poojan".

Chouhan should also clarify that pistol he fired with was licenced or not and if it was licenced, he should declare the name of license holder.
