Early Times Report

Jammu, Oct 12: The sleuths of the Central Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday conducted searches at around 41 locations in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi and in Madhya Pradesh in an on-going infamous investigation of a case related to the Jammu and Kashmir Arms licence racket. The CBI spokesman said that raids were conducted this morning at Srinagar, Anantnag, Banihal, Baramulla, Jammu, Doda, Rajouri, Kishtwar areas of Jammu and Kashmir, Leh, Delhi and Bhind in Madhya Pradesh at the official and residential premises of around 14 then public servants including then District Magistrates (IAS/KAS), DIO, Clerks etc.
Around five private persons (middlemen/agents); around 10 Gun houses/dealers were also searched during an investigation.
“During searches, incriminating documents including issuance of arms licenses, list of beneficiaries, documents related to investment in FDRs and other sale proceeds, property documents, bank account details, locker keys, diary comprising incriminating details, arms license Registers, electronic gadgets/mobile phones and some cash including old currency were recovered,” said the spokesman.
He said that the CBI had registered two cases on the request of Jammu and Kashmir Government and further Notification from Government of India, and taken over the investigation of two FIRs earlier registered at Police Station Vigilance Organisation Kashmir and Jammu on the allegations of bulk issuance of arms licenses in the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir during the period 2012 to 2016.
It was alleged that more than 2.78 lakh arms licences were issued to the non-entitled persons. CBI also collected documents pertaining to the issuance of said armed licences allegedly spread over 22 districts of J&K.
During investigation and scrutiny of documents, the role of certain gun dealers was found who in connivance with the public servants i.e. the then DM and ADM etc of concerned District, had allegedly issued such illegal arms licenses to the ineligible persons, he said.
“It was also alleged that the persons who got these licenses were not residents of the places from where the said arms licenses were issued. Investigation is continuing,” the spokesman revealed.
