BERHAMPUR: An illegal gun-making unit in Nuagada village under Angaragaon panchayat was unearthed by Kodala police on Wednesday night. One Koteswar Maharana alias Basant was arrested.

 Police said two persons were running the unit in a house on the outskirts of the village for a long time, but none had any inkling of it. The matter came to light when a cashewnut trader came to the village inquiring about the unit and its owner.

Receiving information, police reached the village and raided the house. During interrogation, Maharana told the police that gun manufacturing in the unit was stopped a few days back as the person assisting him suffered from paralysis.
