Police commissioner YB Khurania informed that the Jagatsinghpur police had earlier recommended for cancellation of the gun license of father and son duo. “We have now cancelled the arms license of Mahima Mishra and Charchit Mishra. If need arises we may cancel OSL’s helicopter license,” said Khurania.
