A man`s plea for restoring his Arms licence cancelled by the licencing unit of Delhi Police, allegedly in an arbitrary manner, has been dismissed by a local court.
Observing that number of licenced weapons with people in UP is over five times the arms available with police, the Allahabad High Court has restrained the state government from issuing fresh licences.
Over 60,000 people in the capital have arms licence, government said today.
The Madhya Pradesh government has issued directives for reviewing arms licences of those involved in crimes against women and girls and cancel the licences of persons found guilty prima facie.
Arms licenses have been
issued to 61 tribal people for self defence against Maoists in
Bihar`s Rohtas district, officials said.
The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday
ruled that the licence for a firearm should not be denied to a
person merely on the ground that he or she was already in
possession of a weapon.
