Khargone police crackdown on mafias, three held

The Khargone Police has taken action against mafias involved in the illegal manufacturing and supply of weapons. Three individuals have been arrested, and a total of 13 firearms and four live rounds were seized from their possession.

Additionally, materials used for manufacturing illegal firearms were also recovered. Those arrested in this connection are Vinayak Jadhav, Kunal Pardeshi and Roshan alias Kunder Siklikar. The directive to curb the illegal arms trade came from Indore Zone IG (Rural) Rakesh Gupta and Khargone DIG Chandrashekhar Solanki. Following these instructions, SP Dharamveer Singh, city ASP Tarunendra Singh Baghel and Rural ASP Manohar Singh Baria, along with other sub-divisional and station officers, were directed to take effective action. The operation was carried out by the Maingaon outpost under Jaitpur police station. Acting on information received on Tuesday, a police team was dispatched to Khandwa Road, Khargone, near Maruti ITI. Two individuals were spotted with illegal weapons.

The accused, identified as Vinayak and Kunal from Pune, Maharashtra, attempted to flee but were apprehended by the police. Upon searching Vinayak and Kunal, the police found two pistols each with a live round inserted. Further investigation led to the discovery of five firearms in Vinayak's bag and four firearms in Kunal's bag.

The accused disclosed that they had purchased the firearms from Roshan, a resident of Signur. Roshan was subsequently apprehended and a raid on his house in Signur resulted in the seizure of materials used in the manufacturing of illegal firearms. The arrested individuals, Vinayak Jadhav, Kunal Pardeshi and Roshan alias Kunder Siklikar are facing charges under the Arms Act, as per the registration at Maingaon police station.
