Gagan Narang struck gold for the second time as Indian shooters rounded off another fantastic day, breaking one meet record and notching up four gold, two silver and a bronze medal to remain at the top of the table in the Commonwealth Shooting Championships in New Delhi on Saturday.

India's overall medal count stood at 11 and the hosts remained miles ahead of second-placed England, who have won five medals so far.

Gagan, who won the 10m air rifle pairs' gold yesterday, continued his fine form and finished on top in the individual event as well. He shot a score of 699.5, just 0.2 shy of the Commonwealth Championship record set by him in 2005.

Sanjeev Rajput, who shot 694.8, settled for the silver medal, while England's James Huckle took the bronze with a score of 694. Another Indian PT Raghunath finished fourth with a score of 693.2.

Amanpreet Singh notched up another gold medal for India as he broke Jaspal Rana's five-year old meet record in the 50m pistol individual event. He shot a score of 657.4, bettering the 655.1 mark set by Rana.
