Hundreds hand over unlicensed weapons
Hundreds of citizens have voluntarily handed over their unlicensed weapons to the designated collection centers in various police stations around the country since the launching of the campaign to collect unlicensed firearms, ammunition and firecrackers.
According to sources, the security agencies are closely watching those who might dump their weapons in fear of what might happen after the voluntary handover. The agencies have reiterated that no legal action will be taken against anyone who hands over unlicensed weapons voluntarily within the period specified by the Ministry of Interior.
Sources disclosed the ministry has provided seven advanced weapon and ammunition detectors with the capability to detect weapons and ammunition hidden up to six feet or more in the ground and concrete wall. Sources added the ministry has launched awareness programs on the weapons collection through its Media Department to encourage the public to hand over the unlicensed weapons, ammunition and firecrackers in order to avert accidents and catastrophes.
