Bargarh: Police busted an illegal gun-factory in Bargarh where the miscreants used scrap to make guns. They seized 3 big guns and 2 smaller ones along with raw materials from the ‘factory’. Three persons including the mastermind have been arrested in this connection.

The matter came into light when a police patrol team intercepted a bike near Ekamra Chhak and found a gun in it. While interrogating the biker, they found that he bought it from Jitu of Baijapatha village under Sadar Police Station (PS) limits.

Police planned a surprise raid on Jitu’s residence at around 10 am and busted the illegal gun factory. The other arrested persons are identified as Jitu Biswal of Bahiapadar village of Barpali block and Bahadur Pradhan of Charpali village and Manabodha Bhoi of Ekamra Chhak.

Jitu Biswal, the mastermind behind the manufacturing of illegal guns, is a pass-out from ITI and a rice mill worker.
