When asked what he would have done if someone had teased his wife or daughter, he said, "I may have also done the same thing (attacked the eve-teaser)."
Rana, who was injured when he tried to escape from the police on Wednesday night, denied reports that he used to deal in drugs.
Arms licenceRana had procured three weapons on the arms licence issued to him in 2010 by the Amritsar rural police. Interestingly, he was not a member of any political party when he got the licence. He had applied for it on July 15, 2009.
The first verification was done by the Lopoke station house officer (SHO) on August 26, 2009, followed by another by the Lopoke deputy superintendent of police (DSP) on October 28, 2009. Then Amritsar senior superintendent of police (rural) Gurmit Singh Chauhan had cleared the application on February 1, 2010.
Under the rules, a person can have a maximum of three weapons on one licence. Rana had purchased a .12-bore gun, a .32-bore revolver and a .315-bore rifle. The .32-bore revolver and the .315-bore rifle were allegedly used in the ASI's murder on Wednesday.
