New Delhi: The Delhi Police Special Cell arrested an alleged kingpin of an interstate firearms racket in Sonia Vihar and recovered three semi-automatic pistols from his possession. The arrested individual, identified as 34-year-old Dayal Singh, is a resident of Pachauri in Burhanpur district of Madhya Pradesh, the police said.

Pratiksha Godara, DCP Special Cell, stated that based on specific information, they apprehended Gandh Das Dawar, a resident of Burhanpur, on February 3, and recovered 20 illegal firearms from his possession. A case under Section 25(8) of the Arms (Amendment) Act was registered at the Police Station Special Cell, Delhi.

During interrogation, Davar revealed that he received the consignment of illegal arms from Dayal Singh, intending to supply them to one of his contacts in Delhi. Although efforts were made to arrest Dayal Singh, he evaded arrest during the raids conducted at his hideouts in Madhya Pradesh.

On April 18, the police received specific information that Singh would come near Sonia Vihar, Delhi, to supply the illegal firearms to one of his contacts. A trap was laid near Sonia Vihar, resulting in the apprehension and arrest of Singh. Three semi-automatic pistols were recovered from his possession.

During interrogation, Singh confessed that he had been involved in manufacturing illegal firearms for the last 6-7 years in his native village in Madhya Pradesh. He learned this skill from his ancestors, who had been making these illegal weapons for many years. Singh disclosed that he supplied 20 illegal firearms, which were recovered from the possession of accused Gandh Das Davar in the present case.

He further revealed that he made illegal weapons using a furnace located at his residence. The cost of one pistol was around Rs 1,800-2,000, and he sold them for approximately Rs 5,000 each, the police stated.
