Former Team India’s skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Dhoni has applied for arms license citing threat to her life.
According to India.Com, Sakshi has applied for either a pistol or a .32 revolver. The report also states that Dhoni’s wife asked for the license stating that she is mostly alone at home and also has to move around alone for private work. She said that this puts her life in danger and hence she needed to a buy a weapon.
Dhoni himself also has a gun as he applied for a 9mm gun in 2008. The Ranchi district administration at that time had sought a character certificate from Dhoni before sending his application to the Union Home Ministry.
After being turned down at first, former team India skippers application was finally approved in 2010.
Dhoni showed his shooting skills at Kolkata Police Shooting Range ahead of India vs Australia last year.
