Incheon: Six Indian shooters, including women's 10-m air pistol bronze medallist Shweta Chaudhary, were forced to miss their flight back home on Monday after the completion of their events in the 17th Asian Games here due to security issues.

Indian contingent's Chef-de-Mission Adille Sumariwalla said the shooters were delayed at the Korean customs.

"Six shooters had to take the flight at 10 am but their weapon numbers did not match to those written on the forms and some of them had knives, screwdrivers etc with them. They got delayed and missed the 10 o'clock flight and left by the evening flight after we resolved the problem," said Sumariwalla.
