I had arranged Rs 80,000 from my friends and took Rs 1 lakh as a loan for the rifle and luckily Sonu Sood The Foundation arranged the remaining funds for the rifle and I have already placed the order. The German-made rifle would reach me in two and a half months, “said Ms Layak. The Telegraph in March.
