Pistol found inside train at rly station

The train, which arrived at the station around 7.30 am was taken to the pitline area for cleaning purposes. It was noticed on the lower berth of the general compartment, next to the driver’s wagon, around 10.30 am by a cleaning staff. He alerted the Railway Police Force, who in turn alerted the Government Railway Police (GRP), which has taken custody of the weapon.

Deputy Superintendent of GRP Arif Ali said the revolver was not a sophisticated one. “On face value, it looks like a weapon which has not been used for a long period. The 3.5-mm cartridge found next to it also does not seem to fit the revolver,” he said. However, the firearm has been sent to ballistic experts for examination, he said and added, the police were analysing the issue from all angles, he said.
