New Delhi: In further trouble for Buta Singh's son Sarobjit, arrested in an alleged corruption case, Delhi Police today said it has no records about the three firearms recovered from the accused's residence here.

"We are not able to trace in our records anything about the firearms recovered," Delhi Police Commissioner Y S Dadwal told reporters here.

A case under arms Act was registered against Sarobjit, who was arrested by CBI last Friday for allegedly demanding a bribe of Rs one core from a Nashik-based contractor for settling an atrocities case against him in his favour.

The atrocities case was before the National Commission for Scheduled Castes, whose chairman is Buta Singh.

The CBI had recovered three unlicensed fire arms and few live cartridges from Sarobjit's house on Saturday following searches.

A senior Delhi Police official said even if someone had got a license for keeping a firearm from one state and if he takes it to some other place, he has to get endorsement from police in the concerned place.

"We don't know whether the recovered weapons had a license. Even if he had license, Sarobjit did not obtain an endorsement from Delhi Police's licensing branch for keeping it in his Delhi residence," the official added.
