Konika Layak and Sonu Sood.
- Sonu Sood has helped a Jharkhand shooter buy an imported rifle.
- Konika Layak relied on rifles borrowed from her coach or from her friends.
- Sonu Sood had assured him while replying to his appeal in March.
Actor Sonu Sood, who has helped thousands of people during the Corona virus and lockdown, continues to do good work through his charity Sood Foundation. Sonu Sood and his charity recently helped a struggling shooter from Jharkhand buy an imported rifle.
The actor actually came to know about Konika Layak when he tagged her in a tweet in January. Tagging Sonu Sood, Layak wrote in his appeal, ‘In the 11th Jharkhand State Rifle Shooting Championship, I have won a silver and a gold medal. However, the government has not helped me at all. Please help me with a rifle.’ Konika Layak had also tagged the ministry and government official with Sonu Sood.
Konika Layak, who hails from Dhanbad, was dependent on rifles borrowed from her coach or from her friends despite qualifying for the Nationals twice. Responding to his appeal in March, Sonu Sood had assured him that he would get a rifle soon.
Now that the rifle finally reached Konika Layak, she tweeted to thank Sonu Sood. Tagging the actor, Konika wrote, ‘Sir, my rifle is here. A wave of happiness has spread in my family and the whole village is blessing you. In response, Sonu Sood wrote, ‘India’s gold medal in the Olympics is certain. Just need everyone’s prayers.
Konika Layak had told that I cannot have my rifle as it costs around Rs 3 lakh. I have to rely on my coach’s rifle or my friends. I had arranged Rs 80,000 from my friends and also took a loan of Rs 1 lakh for the rifle. Luckily the Sonu Sood Foundation arranged the remaining funds for the rifle and I have already placed the order. The German-made rifle will reach me in two and a half months.
