Shocking but true, Sakshi is the wife of famous cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. She has applied for the gun licence so as to protect the lives of her husband and her daughter, ZeevaDhoni. A more interesting thing is that the cricketer also have a licenced gun with him. The licence of the gun was provided to Mahendra Singh Dhoni in 2010 by the Union Home Ministry as the cricketer was receiving some ransom calls.
SakshiDhoni stated in her application that she did not feel safe when his husband is away on tours. A senior official in District police says that, “Yes, an application for the pistol has been submitted to the arms office by the wife of Mahendra Singh Dhoniand now the application is pending with the SP of Ranchi and after clearance from the upper authorities, she will be issued licence of a gun”.
Sakshi stated that one of the main reason of getting the licence of gun is the threat to their lives. According to a senior official, “Once the application will get the clearance from the SSP, the application will be forwarded to the Deputy Commissioner because the only authority which can issue the licence of arms”. A Ranchi based criminal has threatened the life of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and said that if they will not give a sum of 50 lakhs rupees to him, then he will blow his residence. An FIR was launched against the person and he was later on arrested by the Odisha Police in Bhubaneshwar. After the ransom calls, the police has increased the security for the family of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and placed seven police officers at the residence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in Ranchi. More interesting fact is that even the couple have the two licenced arms with them then what is the need of another gun.
