The Delhi Police on Monday said it has unearthed an illegal firearms manufacturing and assembling unit, that was allegedly being run by a 41-year-old arms dealer from his two-storey rented house in east Delhi’s Shakti Vihar near Karawal Nagar.

A semi-automatic carbine, five pistols, six spare magazines and 16 cartridges, were seized along with raw materials and machinery used in manufacturing firearms.

Police said the accused, Iqbal Khan, is proficient in manufacturing carbines and semi-automatic pistols. They said Iqbal, a native of Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh, supplied carbines and other guns to several criminal gangs in Delhi-NCR and Uttar Pradesh. Police said Iqbal’s father, late Bundu Khan, ran a similar factory at their native village and he was known as “Bandook Khan”.

One of the receivers of Iqbal’s illegally manufactured firearms, Raj Kartik, a former associate of south Delhi’s jailed gangster Shakti Sharda, was also arrested.

Sharda and his accomplices were involved in the 2014 Moolchand robbery case wherein Rs 8 crore was looted at gunpoint from the occupants of a Honda City car.

Deputy commissioner of police (crime) G Ram Gopal Naik said it is for the first time that the Delhi Police has busted an illegal arms unit in the national capital.

DCP Naik said Iqbal was arrested on November 27, following a tip-off that he would come near Ramprastha Crossing bus stop near Anand Vihar railway station to deliver a consignment of firearms.

“Our team caught Iqbal with a carbine, one semi-automatic pistol and four cartridges. His interrogation led to the arrest of Kartik from Chirag Dilli with a countrymade pistol and three bullets on December 1. Kartik had purchased the pistol from Iqbal for Rs 40,000,” Naik said.

Iqbal used to sell semi-automatic carbines for Rs 1 lakh to Rs1.5 Lakh, semi-automatic pistols for Rs 30,000-40,000 and countrymade pistols for Rs 5,000 each, the DCP said.

DCP Naik said Iqbal was arrested with firearms in 2014 from Karawal Nagar but he never disclosed to the police the details of his factory.

“Iqbal had sold a carbine and two pistols to Dheeraj and Neeraj, who were members of Yogesh Bhadoda gang of western UP and were killed in a police encounter in Meerut around nine months ago. A gangster from Meerut, Furkan, who was gunned down by the UP Police 10 months ago had also purchased a carbine from Iqbal,” Naik said.

The matter of demanding the right of worship in the Qutub Minar complex is once again in discussion. In fact, the Saket court has reserved its decision on the reconsideration petition filed in the matter. Delhi’s Saket court will pronounce its verdict on December 12.

This reconsideration petition was filed by petitioner Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad in Saket Court. In fact, the Saket court had rejected the petitioner Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad’s petition in the matter of ownership of Qutub Minar. Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad Singh had filed a petition claiming ownership over Qutub Minar.

By filing the first petition, Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad Singh had demanded to make himself a party in this matter. It was said in his petition that the government had taken over the entire property in 1947 without our permission. This petition was rejected by the court.

The last time in September, when the ASI’s lawyer opposed the petition of Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad Singh, saying that Sultan Begum had claimed the ownership rights over the Red Fort, we had opposed that petition in the Delhi High Court. Even then the court had accepted that there is no basis for the demand made in the petition. ASI had requested to dismiss the petition of Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad Singh.

According to police, a 45-year-old man was arrested on Thursday for allegedly murdering his 35-year-old live-in partner at her rented house in Ganesh Nagar, West Delhi. According to police, the woman’s 16-year-old daughter was asleep in another room at the time of the incident.

According to the police, the victim, Rekha Rani, had lived in Ganesh Nagar with her daughter for more than 15 years, and the partner, Manpreet Singh, had stayed with them for the past 7-8 years.

According to police, Manpreet gave Rekha’s migraine patient daughter some pills and told her to go to sleep on December 1 at around 6 a.m.

“He informed her that her mother had gone to the market when she became suspicious and inquired about her mother. She called her cousin and went to his Paschim Vihar home. They then called the police when they discovered that their house in Ganesh Nagar was locked. Ravindra Singh Yadav, Special CP (Crime Branch), stated, “The victim’s daughter stated in her statement that she suspected that Manpreet had harmed her mother and that Manpreet and her mother had been fighting over money for some time.”

According to the police, the suspect allegedly stabbed Rekha in the neck and face while she resisted and mutilated a finger on her right hand.

Manpreet moved in with Rekha after meeting her in 2015. He claimed that Rekha stopped letting him visit and talk to his family because, over time, she started to feel insecure. A police officer stated, “He purchased a chopper (cleaver knife) recently to murder her and planned to kill her.”

According to the police, the accused is allegedly involved in six cases in Delhi, including kidnapping for a ransom, an attempt to kill, the arms act, and forgery.

According to the police, the suspect drove to his home village of Nabha in Punjab after killing the woman. Police said the car was found through toll barriers and he was caught using technical investigation.
