Congress leader shares Facebook post worshipping his illegal weapon, gets arrested

A case has been lodged under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and arms act on the basis of a complaint by Chaibasa police station officer-in-charge (OIC) Sunil Tiwari.

A Congress leader in West Singhbhum district, Jharkhand, has been put behind bars after he uploaded his picture worshipping an illegal country-made gun on Vijaya Dashami on his Facebook timeline.

Radha Mohan Banerjee, Congress’ West Singhbhum district’s treasurer was arrested from his home in Chaibasa on Friday night, confirmed a police official on Sunday adding that the illegal country-made weapon, along with a licensed double-barrel gun and bullets have been seized from his residence.

“We had information of Banerjee possessing a country-made pistol illegally and his photo of worshipping weapons on Facebook confirmed the same,” said, Amar Kumar Pandey, Chaibasa sub-divisional police officer (SDPO).

A case has been lodged under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and arms act on the basis of a complaint by Chaibasa police station officer-in-charge (OIC) Sunil Tiwari, who lead the raid. He said that “His arms license is valid till 2020 but in the wake of the seizure of illegal gun from his possession, we will recommend the cancellation of his license.”

The Congress leader had obtained the license for a double-barrel gun in 2011 when lived in Tonto, Jhinkpani.

Talking about the matter, Congress’ West Singhbhum district unit president Sunny Sinku said: “Opposition leaders and workers are being trapped in trivial cases and sent to jail but I will make any comment only after consulting our party working president in-charge of Kolhan Keshav Mahato Kamlesh.”

Earlier also, MLA Pranav Singh ‘Champion’ had been expelled from BJP after his gun trotting video went viral in July 2019. The MLA was seen brandishing guns and dancing to a popular Bollywood song in a video clip that had gone viral. Pranav Singh ‘Champion’ had resigned from Congress in 2016 where he was a cabinet minister in the then Congress government in Uttarakhand led by Harish Rawat.
