Sakshi Singh Rawat has applied for permission to keep a pistol or 0.32 revolver.


Not only India's legendary cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni, but also his wife Sakshi is a paperazzi fravourite.

In her application, she mentioned that there is a possibility of threat to her life as most of the time she is alone at home. She said that this puts her life in danger and hence it is safer for her to carry a weapon.

Sakshi has reportedly applied for the license in the Magistrate's office which was then sent to the police for verification.

Incidentally, MS Dhoni had applied for a gun in 2006 and after being initially turned down his request for a 9 mm had been approved.

During a process for issuing pistol, the Ranchi district administration had in 2008 had asked the former Indian cricket captain to submit his character certificate before forwarding his application to the Union Home Ministry.

During the India vs Australia ODI series past year, Dhoni showed off his shooting skills in Kolkata when he visited the Police shooting ranges. "He's an extraordinary marksman and inspired us all", the top Kolkata Police official who accompanied Dhoni told PTI.
