New Delhi: A person working in a Gurgaon-based MNC was today held for allegedly carrying a local firearm at a Delhi Metro station.
Officials said the incident occurred around 8 AM at the Vaishali Metro station when the 35-year-old man, identified as Navnit C, was intercepted by CISF security personnel after they detected the firearm-like object in his bag.
"A desi katta (local-made pistol) was recovered from his bag. The passenger could not give satisfactory reply for carrying the banned item," a senior Central Industrial Security Force official said.
The official added Navneet, a resident of Meerut, works in a multi-national company in nearby Gurgaon.
"As carrying firearms is banned in Metro, he was handed over to Uttar Pradesh Police," the official added.
