Jalandhar: One of the MBA students of Lovely Professional University (LPU) Amanpreet Singh has once again proved his mettle by bagging Gold medal in 25 meter ‘Standard Pistol’ event during XVII Kumar Surendra Singh Memorial Shooting Championship- 2017. The seven day competition was held in New Delhi under the aegis of ‘the National Rifle Association of India’.
