India claims cheating in the shooting

Abhinav Bindra who won India’s first individual gold medal at the Olympics, claims that the sights on his gun were tampered with.

Bindra has recalled going to the toilet at the same time his German coach Gabriela Buehlmann went out for a cigarette, leaving the gun unattended. It was at this moment that the Indians suspect the rifle was tampered with.

No official complaint has yet been filed by the Indians and officials say it is up to the athlete to take responsibility for their rifle.
