100 blank-firing pistols found in Delhi car
Around 100 blank-firing pistols meant to be delivered in areas of the national capital region (NCR) were Tuesday recovered from a car here, police said.
The two occupants of the car were also detained.
"The car was coming towards Bagdola village when a police team spotted it in Dwarka area of south Delhi. On seeing the police team, the occupants tried to flee but were caught," said a police officer.
The pistols were being transported in two jute bags.
Such pistols are often used in races. The firing causes a loud noise, accompanied by smoke, but no cartridge is involved. A license is required for such pistols.
Police said they were questioning the men and trying to ascertain the places and the people for whom the pistols were to be delivered.
