    On January 30 midnight, the police intercepted a Tata Safari on a highway in Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, and seized 48 pistols and 97 cartridges from Mohammed Insaf and his wife, Gulshan Devi. Though the pistols had a ‘Made in Italy’ label, the couple told the police that these illicit arms were made in Munger, Bihar, for customers in western UP. “They were part of an arms smuggling racket of Munger, comprising more than 30 persons,” said Deputy Inspector-General of Police Dipesh Juneja.

    Munger is famous for its SLRs, Kalashnikovs, carbines, 9mm pistols and Sixer—a six-round revolver. While an ordinary pistol costs Rs:8,000 to Rs:10,000, an SLR comes at Rs:20,000 and Kalashnikovs sell at Rs:50,000. However, there is always room for bargain. Kattas (countrymade pistols) are popular in rural pockets because they cost only Rs:2,500 to Rs:5,000. They are made of steel pipes, iron rods of bicycles and other ordinary materials.

    India's secularism seems to have filtered down even to the level of arms smugglers :D

    On a serious note

    UP needs its version of Nitish Kumar soon, that state seems to be going from bad to worse.

    Shoot the traffickers without any trial. Cleaning the mess is best option. And we wonder how Naxalites get weapons....
