The Mumbai High Court has asked the Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner Ramrao Wagh to respond to a petition that claimed that two persons including a Bihar minister had been issued a gun license in violation of residency rules. It seems that issuing license to Bihar’s minister Jamshed Ashraf and Mumbai’s Ramesh Dange by the Navi Mumbai police Commissionerate, has invited troubles for the Navi Mumbai Police. This is because, Jamshed Ashraf is Bihar’s state minister for registration and excise and is a permanent resident of Mungeriganj, Bihar, but holds a arms license issued to him by police commissioner of Navi Mumbai. The Commissioner’s office also reportedly issued a licence to corporator Rajesh Dhage, a resident of Somanpada, Nalasopara, which comes under Thane rural area. A resident of Uran filed a petition in High court stating that the duo have been provided license in an illegitimate manner. Following this petition, the High court, in its hearing sent out notices to the Police Commissioner of Navi Mumbai and Jamshed Ashraf who is a Minister in the Bihar government and was issued a gun license from the Navi Mumbai Commissioner of Police. We met CP Ramrao Wagh on the subject who said that they would present all the proofs only in the high court. The case however, has increased the worries of the Navi Mumbai Police and brought its gun licensing process under the scanner. Rajeev Mishra – NMTV News.
