So who stole the gun assigned to acting Assistant Commissioner of Police, Radcliffe Boxhill?
Sources say that the vehicle belonging Boxhill, was broken into last Tuesday, and his police issued weapon was stolen.
The senior officer reported to the Central Police Station on Tuesday that he parked his car in the basement of the Police Administration Building around 10 am and returned around 5 pm.
He said on his return to his vehicle, he discovered that his vehicle appeared to have been broken into and his firearm was missing.
Investigators along with fingerprint experts carried out inquiries but the weapon was not found. Sources revealed that only police officers as well as civilian staff are allowed to park at the basement of the Police Administration Building and if the officer’s vehicle was tampered with, it could have only been someone with access to the basement.
In other words, it could only be a police officer or a civilian worker who could have broken into the car and gone with the gun. The basement is guarded and is monitored by surveillance cameras.
So far, no one was seen going even close to Boxhill’s vehicle on that day.
Is it true that the gun has since been recovered and was in the possession of another senior officer?
The investigating officer, Deputy Commissioner Deodath Dulalchan must say if this is true or not.
