Indian shooter Anish Bhanwala, aged 15, on Friday created history by becoming the country's youngest ever gold medal victor in the Commonwealth Games (CWG). "The names keep changing but I get the same results", said the youngster, who is now busy worrying about his maths exam when he lands in India.

"I started very well in the first round, in fact this opponent was not good as the one I defeated in the quarterfinals, but here you get exhausted", She added. Later that year, she took gold at the 2013 Commonwealth Championships and followed that up with a bronze at the 2014 Asian Championships.

The 37-year-old Tejaswini claimed the top prize by shattering the Games record in women's 50m rifle 3 positions event while putting in the shade compatriot and silver victor Anjum Moudgil's remarkable resilience.

On the other hand, the 24-year-old Moudgil Anjum Moudgil bagged silver medal in the same event.

Meanwhile, Pooja Dhandha had to settle for a silver medal as she lost a competitive match against the defending champion in the 58kg category, Odunayo Adekuoroye of Nigeria on Friday.

"I felt we had our chances in the match, but we didn't manage to convert them".

Boxer Gaurav Solanki has become the third Indian pugilist, after MC Mary Kom and Amit Panghal, to make it to the final.

"It was very comfortable for me".

"I don't hold on to old things because that day doesn't come back". There is no doping offence involved.

As if the humiliation of having athletes sent home was not enough, the manner in which the administrative staff of the Indian contingent gave contradictory statements only added to the mess.

The Indian team were not immediately available for comment and the CGF refused to take any further questions.

Indian officials told reporters they would be appealing the decision. Both athletes will leave Australia and board the first flight for India.

The hearing took place on 12 April during which the Federation Court of the Commonwealth Games Federation said that these individuals failed to ensure compliance with the No Needle Policy.

"With great regret I would like to confirm that accreditations of Triple Jumper Rakesh Babu and Race Walker Irfan Kolothum Thodi have been suspended by CGF following a violation of the No Needle Policy".
