The special exemption from trials given to Olympic champion Abhinav Bindra should be extended to other top shooters as well, Commonwealth Games gold medallist Samresh Jung has demanded.

“It is good that Abhinav has got this exemption but I think it should not be a one-time thing. There are others like Gagan Narang, Sanjeev Rajput who are getting good scores on the international circuit,” said Samresh, who was named the best athlete of the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games.

“Instead of trials, the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) should consider the international scores for inclusion in the team,” he added.
