Although Deepika has failed to bagged a spot but her husband Atanu Das managed to make it to the side for the continental sporting event. After the National trials that concluded on Monday at the Sports Authority of India, Sonipat, the team for the upcoming Asian Games as well as Asian Championships, World Championships and four archery World Cups for this year was selected.
