In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) today raided 22 locations in connection with the fake gun license case. AIR correspondent reports that the CBI sleuths conducted extensive raids at 22 places which includes 12 places in Kashmir and 10 in Jammu region in connection with the fake gun license case that was handed over to CBI in 2018.
The case was first probed by Anti-Terror Squad of Rajasthan after which it was handed over to CBI after startling revelations about fake gun licenses given to non J&K residents surfaced.
The Rajasthan ATS had nailed that 40 thousand fake gun licenses were issued to non-J&K residents in Udhampur, Doda, Ramban and Kupwara districts of the Union Territory on forged documents. The initial probe had revealed that an IAS officer had issued a large number of fake gun licenses to non J&K residents when he was heading a district as Deputy Commissioner.
