Seven arrested for allegedly running a fake arms licence racket

Illegal weapons are in circulation and being used for various purposes by dubious means in Hyderabad. In a shocking incident the perpetrators used fake seals of licence issuing officials & forged the signatures to prepare the fake arm licences and procured real weapons.
City Police Commissioner C.V. Anand presenting the facts of the case in his office and communicating through a press release, said that the mastermind of the racket Altaf Hussain, resident of Rajouri district- J&K, came to Hyderabad in 2013 for livelihood and joined Grace Management Security Service. Later he was deployed as gunman in SIS cash service, West Marredpally. Prior to his employment in city, he purchased a double bore gun using a fake arms licence in Rajouri, J&K which he had obtained by bribing the local magistrate office.
As he was familiar with the process and licence details and teamed up with Hafeezuddin, a stamp vendor in Secunderabad, and started issuing fake gun licenses by indulging in forgery and affixing fake seals. These fake documents have been used to procure real arms. Further he steeped the illegal activity and starting issuing fake arms licenses and trapped the unemployed youth residing in J&K states who tried to make a living as security guards in private security firms. Using the fake All India Licenses (Rajouri based), weapons were procured from other states by these gullible candidates for 40 to 60, 000/- rupees.
This infringement has taken place with the connivance of Venkata Konda Reddy, Regional Manager at Grace Management Security Services and I. Srinivas, xerox shop owner in West Marredpally.
