Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 13: Arrest of a local businessman in an alleged fake gun license case by Rajasthan ATS is likely to open Pandora's box on this sensitive issue yet again.
Sources divulged that there is a strong nexus between the agents and the issuing authorities and huge under table deals are executed for issuing gun licenses to unknown people from outside the state. In the case under investigation of the Rajasthan ATS wherein gun license was issued from a peripheral district of Kashmir, sources disclosed that the businessman in question had paid loads of cash to the issuing authority and the deal was struck at a destination outside the state. " The officer was in league with the businessman in shady deals, but later took to blackmailing and arm twisting tactics and forcibly usurped his car, besides extorting heavy amount from him" said a source, adding, "he was even compelling the agent to buy him a flat".
Sources also divulged that the businessmen in question and the issuing officer enjoyed a cordial relation.
In a coordinated raid, Rajasthan ATS apprehended four persons during different raids in Ajmer, Punjab, Dewas in Madhya Pradesh and in Jammu on Monday last.
According to investigations so far, Khan, who owns a gun shop, was in touch with one the accused at Abohar in Punjab and another accused in Jammu, who allegedly in connivance of government officials, was getting the licences issued.
It is not the first time that a fake gun license racket has surfaced in the state.
In 2011, Jammu and Kashmir police busted a racket of fake gun licenses and asked authorities to cancel as many as 209 such licenses. Investigations had revealed that as many as 209 fake gun licences in different districts. Besides a few officials three businessmen owning gun units in Jammu were accused of being involved in the racket.
The highest number of 53 fake gun licences were issued in Rajouri, 30 in Poonch, 29 in home department, 27 in Doda, 15 in Ramban, 13 in Kathua, 11 in Udhampur, 8 in Jammu districts, 6 in Reasi, 3 each in Srinagar and Anantnag districts and one in Kishtwar district.
