A 38-year-old retired Army jawan was arrested for allegedly firing four rounds in the air from his licensed shotgun here early on Thursday, police said.

The incident took place on Saibaba Palkhi Marg near Hotel Sai Kausalya around 1.30 am, they said.

“The accused, Pushkaraj Singh, a resident of Rewa district of Madhya Pradesh, fired four rounds in the air from his licensed 12-bore shotgun. He was accompanied by his two friends at the time of the incident,” police inspector Arvind Mane said.

Before that, the accused also threatened some people in a nearby locality, he added.

“The shotgun as well as 10 cartridges was recovered from the accused and he was arrested,” Mane said, adding that it was being ascertained if Singh had consumed liquor. — PTI
