Promising young pistol shooter Amol Chauhan was one among the 15 Indians onboard the fateful Kenya-bound flight, that crashed with 114 people in a dense forest in Cameroon on Saturday.

Amol was son of Sharad Chauhan, Managing Director of Parle Products, and was a regular part of the National Championships.

Amol had won two team silver medals in the National Games in Guwahati early this year, which was his last competitive tournament.

National Rifle Association of India General Secretary Baljit Singh Sethi has condoled Amol's death. "May God rest the departed soul in peace," he said in his message.
