The local police busted an illegal cracker godown at Mohalla Satguru Nagar on Friday and arrested its owner. The owner had stored a huge quantity of crackers and he had no permission for the same.

The godown owner has been identified as Jasdeep Singh. A case was registered against him yesterday.

Investigation officer ASI Karanbir Singh said secret information was received that Jasdeep, who owns Rana Confectionery, had stored a huge quantity of crackers in a godown in his house at Satguru Nagar and he had no licence for doing so. Jasdeep had already sold a large stock of crackers and had earned huge money.

A police party conducted a raid on the house of Jasdeep from where a large stock of crackers was recovered.

The ASI said Jasdeep had stored crackers in the residential area which is not only illegal but also dangerous for locality residents.
