The men's 10m Air Rifle finals is the showcase event of the National Championships but with Bindra's absence this time the finals will lose some of its sheen.

"Due to personal reasons which require me to travel I will not be able to complete my full competition at the national championships," Bindra wrote on his twitter handle.

"I will however complete my qualification round on one of the days and fulfill the NRAI norms for selection etc."
