**Berhampur:** Police has seized two country-made guns (one pistol, one revolver), four rounds of ammunition, five live bombs, five vehicles, one crusher and a huge amount of land documents from the possession of arrested Sib Shankar Das alias Pintu, who is the former Mayor of Berhampur Municipal Corporation.
Convening a press meet on Wednesday, Berhampur SP Asish Kumar Singh informed media that police would pray for more seven-day remand of Pintu before the court.
The former mayor was on four-day remand in connection with Golanthara Police Station (PS) cases. Several cases are also pending before the Berhampur PS and Gosaninuagaon PS, said the SP.
The SP also informed that six complainants have, meanwhile, filed their FIR against Pintu after his arrest for alleged criminal intimidation and property grabbing.
He appealed such aggrieved people and general public to come forward and lodge their complaints if any as the special drive against crimes and criminals is still on in the district by the police.
Notably, police on Tuesday raided the former mayor’s house in his presence.
In his reactions, Siba Shankar Das said, “I’m innocent, cooperating with the police in its investigation, court would decide if I’m guilty or not”.
