Bhubaneswar: Commissionerate Police on Sunday busted an illegal firearm manufacturing unit running at a government quarter allotted to an employee of Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology (OUAT), identified as Nrusingha Nayak.

Twin City Police Commissioner Satyajit Mohanty on Monday informed that, acting on a tip off, police had conducted a raid at his residence last night and found raw materials for manufacturing firearms. Three half-made revolvers, gun powder and other incriminating materials were seized and Nayak was arrested.

From preliminary investigation it was found that Nayak is a resident of Sarakantara village. His brother had been killed in 2006 in an accidental explosion while making a bomb.

While Nayak claims that he has been manufacturing the arms and explosives to protect himself from his enemies, exact motive behind running the illegal arms manufacturing unit will be ascertained only after thorough investigation, said Mohanty.

The Commissioner further informed that a probe will be conducted to identify the source of the raw materials, place of delivery of manufactured arms and if there is any conspiracy to attack any person allegedly over past enmity.
