Former captain of the Indian cricket team MS Dhoni and his wife Sakshi Dhoni are a power couple. While on one hand Dhoni runs an empire of his own by now, his wife Sakshi takes care of the family and their daughter Ziva. So when it comes to their financial status, the two have access to all the luxury in the world. The rich couple has now found their latest trouble. Dhoni’s wife Sakshi has come up with a new difficulty she has been facing.

The lady has applied for an arms licence recently. For this, Sakshi has cited a reason that for most of the time, she remains alone at home and there is a possibility of threat to her life.



As per a recent report, in 2010, Dhoni got his own license and now Sakshi has applied for either a pistol or a .32 revolver. Sakshi has also given a major reason behind this, stating that quite often she had to move around alone for private work. The report states that this puts her life in danger and therefore it is safe for her to carry a weapon along.



In 2008, Dhoni applied for 9 mm gun. During that time no approval was given to his application by the union home ministry. However,  the authorities approved his second application in 2010.



Dhoni currently enjoys Y category security from the Jharkhand government. Also, his house in Ranchi receives protection from the police throughout the year.



In 2017, when India lost to Pakistan during the ICC Champions Trophy final, the security at Dhoni’s residence was increased.
