The magazine of the AK-47 assault rifle carrying 30 bullets that went missing from a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) official, attached to the security convoy of DMK Treasurer M K Stalin, was handed over to the CRPF by a senior DMK functionary on Saturday.

According to sources, the magazine was handed over by DMK urban district secretary G Thalapathi to CRPF police sub-inspector (in-charge) Subash Chandra Bose at Sangam Hotel on Saturday morning. Bose in turn handed the magazine over to Perungudi police, who were investigating the case after receiving a complaint from the CRPF personnel John Kennady.

On being questioned by police as to where Thalapathi had found the magazine, he reportedly told them that a party functionary had found the same at the airport.

However, police were reportedly unconvinced by the story.

An official said, “How could the party cadre find the magazine at the airport when we along with CISF personnel were unable to trace it on Friday evening.”

The police suspect that the person who found the magazine might have taken it. However, after learning about a case being registered and a hunt being launched in the regard, the person might have returned it, claimed the the police.

Meanwhile, the police said that they would continue with their investigations to find out whether the magazine had gone missing or was stolen.
