MP forgets pistol in train

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, AUG. 10. Mohammad Tahir Khan, a Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MP from the Sultanpur constituency of Uttar Pradesh, reportedly left his licensed pistol in a cabin of the Lucknow Mail in which he had come to Delhi today. Hours later the firearm was recovered by the Railway Protection Force (RPF) after Mr. Khan raised an alarm.

According to sources, Mr. Khan arrived here this morning for some work. Later, he found that his licensed firearm was missing. Thinking that he had left it in the AC First Class cabin of the Lucknow Mail, he contacted the RPF asking them to carry out a search. Around 4 p.m., the train was traced to Sarai Rohilla railway station, where it was taken for a routine wash. The firearm was found kept near the MP's birth.
