Chargesheet filed in illegal weapon scam

Faridkot, October 20

The Punjab Police’s Organised Crime Control Unit (OCCU) today submitted a chargesheet in the court of the duty magistrate against a Chandigarh-based gun dealer and owner of a car agency of Moga in the illegal trafficking of foreign-made weapons.

In the chargesheet, the OCCU claimed both accused were part of a chain of inter-state network of smuggling and sale of prohibited weapons in the country. The OCCU has already recovered over 20 weapons from Satish Kumar, owner of Vishal Gun House, Chandigarh.

The OCCU alleged the accused had violated the terms and conditions of the court orders while getting the custody of these weapons on ‘superdari’. By way of the ‘superdari’ bond, Kumar was to produce these weapons before the police or court, as and when required. Some of these weapons were sold by the accused, it said. — TNS
