दिल्ली पुलिस के स्पेशल सेल के मशहूर डीसीपी सजीव कुमार यादव ने गोल्ड जीता

दिल्ली पुलिस के स्पेशल सेल के मशहूर डीसीपी सजीव कुमार यादव ने गोल्ड जीता

नई दिल्ली : 31 अगस्त I पैंतीसवीं दिल्ली स्टेट शूटिंग चैंपियनशिप की राइफल पिस्टल स्पर्द्धाओं का बीती शाम समापन हो गया। एशिया की सबसे बड़ी शूटिंग रेंज पर दिल्ली स्टेट राइफल एसोसिएशन ने इस प्रतियोगिता का आयोजन किया जिसमें युवा निशानेबाज़ों ने कई नए रिकॉर्ड कायम किये, अर्पित गोयल ने रैपिड फायर पिस्टल इवेंट में नैशनल रिकॉर्ड तोड़ते हुए 589 स्कोर किया। 

डीएसआरए के सचिव राजीव शर्मा ने बताया कि इस बार दिल्ली स्टेट शूटिंग में बारह सौ से ज़्यादा निशानेबाज़ों ने भाग लिया है, ये संख्या पिछले साल की तुलना में तकरीबन दोगुनी है। इस बार बारह साल से कम उम्र के बच्चों का मैच भी कराया गया है। दिल्ली में लगातार निशानेबाज़ी का क्रेज़ बढ़ रहा है, युवा निशानेबाज़ों में हर्ष गुप्ता ने तरह गोल्ड समेत मेडल जीते, शौर्य सरीन ने नौ गोल्ड सहित तरह मेडल जीते और अग्नेय कौशिक ने कुल दस मेडल जीतकर सबको आकर्षित किया।

दिल्ली पुलिस के स्पेशल सेल के मशहूर डीसीपी सजीव कुमार यादव ने भी इस मुकाबले में एक गोल्ड समेत तीन मेडल जीते। उन पर बनी फिल्म बाटला हाउस हाल ही में रिलीज़ हुई है, जिसमें उनकी भूमिका जॉन अब्राहम ने निभाई है। संजीव अगले महीने जर्मनी में होने जा रही मास्टर्स शूटिंग चैंपियनशिप में भारत का प्रतिनिधित्व करने जा रहे हैं। 

दिल्ली सरकार के पूर्व कैबिनेट मंत्री हारून यूसुफ ने यहाँ निशानेबाज़ों को मेडल पहनाकर हौसला अफजाई की और खुद भी शूटिंग सीखने की इच्छा जताई। 

दिल्ली के राज्यसभा सांसद संजय सिंह यहां निशानेबाज़ों को सम्मानित करने पहुंचे तो निशानेबाज़ी में भी हाथ आज़माया, और राइफल से सटीक निशाना लगाया। उन्होंने कहा कि अभिनव बिंद्रा ने ओलिम्पिक में गोल्ड मेडल जीतकर देश को सम्मान दिलाया और लगातार भारत के निशानेबाज़ दुनियाभर में देश का नाम रौशन कर रहे हैं। 

दिल्ली राज्य राइफल संघ के संयुक्त सचिव और पत्रकार फरीद अली ने कहा कि दिल्ली में जिस तरह निशानेबाज़ी के खेल में नौजवान आगे आ रहे हैं और लगातार संख्या बढ़ रही है, हमें दिल्ली में और शूटिंग रेंज बनानी चाहिए। दिल्ली में डॉ कर्णी सिंह रेंज एक विश्व स्तर की शूटिंग रेंज है, लेकिन यहां आए दिन कोई न कोई प्रतियोगिता, या नैशनल ट्रेनिंग कैम्प चलते रहते हैं, साथ ही यहां देशभर से निशानेबाज़ ट्रेनिंग के लिए आते हैं, खास तौर से उत्तर भारत के राज्यों से। जिससे नए निशानेबाज़ों को अभ्यास करने में दिक्कत होती है। फरीद ने सांसद संजय सिंह से अपनी मांग रखते हुए कहा कि वो दिल्ली सरकार से एक और बड़ी शूटिंग रेंज बनाने की सिफारिश करें, जहाँ दिल्ली के निशानेबाज़ों को तरजीह दी जाए, ताकि दिल्ली से और ज़्यादा विश्व स्तरीय निशानेबाज़ तैयार हो सकें।

10 मीटर राइफल वुमन स्पर्धा में ऐश्वर्या गुप्ता ने 622.2 अंकों के साथ स्वर्ण पदक जीता, नियति खन्ना ने 617.7 अंकों के साथ रजत पदक जीता, तो पारुल शर्मा को 617.4 स्कोर पर कांस्य पदक से संतोष करना पड़ा। इस इवेंट की यूथ कैटेगरी में ऋतंबरा दास ने 609 स्कोर करके गोल्ड मेडल जीता, जबकि धारिणी शर्मा ने भी बराबर स्कोर किया लेकिन उन्हें रजत पदक मिला, दीक्षा माथुर 605.3 स्कोर करके ब्रोज़ मेडल जीत पायीं। 

10 मीटर पिस्टल मेन इवेंट में हर्ष गुप्ता ने 576, अनमोल अरोड़ा ने 575 और शौर्य सरीन ने 574 स्कोर करके क्रमशः गोल्ड, सिल्वर और ब्रॉन्ज़ मेडल जीता।

25 मीटर सेंटर फायर पिस्टल इवेंट में अर्पित गोयल ने गोल्ड मेडल, अग्नेय कौशिक ने सिल्वर और स्पेशल सेल के डीसीपी संजीव कुमार यादव ने ब्रोज़ मेडल जीता, इन्होने क्रमशः 564, 559 और 556 स्कोर किया। 

25 मीटर स्पोर्ट पिस्टल इवेंट में इशिका सिंह ने स्वर्ण पदक जीता, लवलीन कौर ने रजत पदक और महिमा सिंह ने कांस्य पदक जीता, इनका स्कोर 566, 558 और 554 रहा। 

50 मीटर थ्री पोज़िशन राइफल मेन इवेंट में तरुण यादव, रितेश तंवर और अभी कुमार गोयल ने गोल्ड सिल्वर और ब्रॉन्ज़ मेडल जीते, इन तीनों ने 1146, 1132 और 1124 स्कोर किया। 

दिल्ली हाईकोर्ट के पूर्व चीफ जस्टिस मनमोहन सरीन, विधायक पवन शर्मा और पूर्व आईआरएस अधिकारी रहे पूरन चंद पांडे भी दिल्ली के निशानेबाज़ों की हौसला अफजाई के लिए यहाँ पहुंचे। डीएसआरए की वाइस चेयरमैन शकुन भुगरा, ट्रेजरर जसपाल सिंह मारवाह, गवर्निंग बॉडी मेंबर ईशविंदरजीत सिंह, अनुपम कमल, समरीन सैयद, फलक शेर आलम, गौरव सरीन, अचल सहगल, राजेंद्र शर्मा के साथ रेंज ऑफिसर दीपक कुमार दुबे, गंगाधर शर्मा, अमित कोसलिया, लवलीन कौर, नीता शर्मा, नरेश चौधरी और रविंदर कुमार भी पदक वितरण समारोह में मौजूद रहे।

 FARIDABAD 9 August : Royal Enfield, the global leader in the mid-size motorcycle segment, has consistently worked towards building increased accessibility for consumers, into the motorcycling way of life.  With close to 930 existing dealer touchpoints in India alone, more than 8800 service bays, and more than 900 authorised service workshops, Royal Enfield has the most widespread sales and service network among premium brands in the country. Adding to this extensive network, Royal Enfield announced the launch of 250 new dealer touch-points across tier II and III cities and towns. To be operational from today, the new Royal Enfield Studio Stores will  have the same retail identity as  existing dealerships across cities, and will have the entire portfolio of motorcycles, in addition to service and spares.  The Company takes pride in its long association with the armed forces and is proud to have all the new stores inaugurated simultaneously by retired army personnel. The company also announced the launch of six new colours of the iconic Royal Enfield Bullet. The Bullet will now be available starting at Rs. 1,12,000/- (ex-showroom) 


Speaking about the launch of the new Studio Stores and the new Bullet motorcycles, Mr. Vinod K Dasari, CEO, Royal Enfield, said, “It has been our constant endeavour to build greater accessibility for discerning customers and widen our footprint in India. We have witnessed significant demand across smaller towns and cities which are showing tremendous potential for growth and are soon becoming a huge market for middle-weight motorcycle segment. Motorcycling aspirants in these towns are quickly catching on the trend of leisure motorcycling. With an intent to significantly expand our reach and build a robust network into these towns and cities, we are happy to announce the launch of 250 new Royal Enfield Studio Stores. We have definite plans to increase this further by the end of this fiscal”

Speaking at the launch event in Kochi, Mr Shaji Koshy, Head India Business+, Royal Enfield, said, “Kerala has been an exciting market for Royal Enfield, and we are focused on growing our expanse and offerings in the state. The launch of the Studio Stores is a significant step towards coming closer to consumers in smaller towns and cities of Kerala. Similarly, the launch of the new Bullet motorcycles widens our product offerings and builds a new chapter to the legacy of the Bullet. With these new initiatives, we hope to engage more riding enthusiasts into the Royal Enfield world of pure motorcycling” 

To be located primarily in smaller towns and cities across India, the Royal Enfield Studio Stores is a unique, compact format that will house the entire range of Royal Enfield motorcycles, alongside service and spares and the entire suite of Royal Enfield motorcycle accessories and apparel. The format of the stores will be spread across 500-600 sq.ft. area and will be identical visually and operationally to existing Royal Enfield dealership. These compact stores are intended to provide significantly greater accessibility of sales and service to existing customers and to cater to increasing demand from potential customers in up-country markets.  

In Kerala, Royal Enfield will have 9 new Studio Stores in addition to the existing 59 dealerships across the state. The new stores will be located in and around towns such as Pandikkad, Kattakada, Mukkom, and Chalakudy among others.

The Royal Enfield Bullet is an iconic motorcycle that’s had an enduring journey over the last 87 years - since 1932. This has given Royal Enfield the privilege of being the world’s oldest motorcycle brand in continuous production, with the Bullet being the longest running motorcycle model in the world. The launch of the new Bullet motorcycles, adds another chapter to this resilient journey.
The new Bullet, in striking new livery, bold new colours and contemporary design themes provide varied options to prospective buyers. The Bullet 350, in addition to its existing black colour, will now be available in three new colours - the Bullet Silver, Bullet Sapphire Blue and the Bullet Onyx Black. Bullet 350 ES will be launched in Jet Black, Regal Red, Royal Blue colour options in addition to the current Maroon and Silver variants. These new motorcycles will come an aesthetic blacked out theme. The new Bullet motorcycles will be open for bookings at Royal Enfield stores across India at an ex-showroom price of Rs 1,12,000 (ex-showroom)

Launching along with the new Bullet range of motorcycles, is another significant step towards customer satisfaction. Royal Enfield announced the launch of a new initiative on improving Cost of Ownership. Across all its authorised service centers, the company will commence the use of a new set of processes and technology, coupled with a new mix of semi-synthetic oil, for servicing. These initiatives will now increase the service interval from being 3 months / 3000 kms to 6 months / 5000 kms. The oil change interval also increases to 12 months or 10,000 kms, as opposed to the earlier 6 months or 5000 kms. This will therefore, bring down the overall service interventions required in a year and will bring down the cost of service by an average of 40% over a period of 3 years, thereby significantly improving cost of ownership for the customer. This new service improvement initiative will be applicable to all current Unit Construction Engine engine motorcycles models under the unit construction engine platform - the Bullet, Classic and the Thunderbird.
