Probe into breach of norms in issuing arms licenses to Chadha

The district administration has initiated an inquiry into reports of issuing of arms license to slain liquor baron Ponty Chadha despite being ineligible for the same on grounds of disability.

A probe into alleged overlooking of Chadha's ineligibility in the 1991 case by the then district magistrate has been initiated, Additional District Magistrate Sayyed Nizamuddin said today.

He said the probe was initiated taking cognizance of recent media reports which claimed that license was issued to Chadha by the then district magistrate on June 26, 1991, the same day the application was filed, overlooking his ineligibility.

Besides Chadha, orders of issuance of licenses to six of his family members were also passed on the same day of application, the reports claimed.
