But question raises about how this firearm came into the area. It is being investigated by the police whether the firearms were used during Maoist activities.

Khatra Sub-divisional officer, Vivek Verma, told the Kolkata 24 × 7 that the naka checking was going on continuously in the Jungle Mahal of West Midnapore-Bankura border. The search operation was further extended after this incident. CCTV will be installed quickly in those areas where CCTV is not installed.
