A 21-year-old Sikh has admitted charges of possessing 92 weapons following a raid on his home in the UK. Parwinder Baning admitted importing and possessing dozens of prohibited weapons, including a 100,000-volt stun gun, twice as powerful as police Tasers, during a hearing at Leicester Crown court.


Baning appeared in the court on Wednesday following a raid at his home in Leicester in December during which a large number of weapons were seized.

According to Sky News, officers also found knuckle dusters, pepper spray, push daggers and an extendable baton.

They found 37 knives, including hunting knives, martial arts knives and throwing knives, at his home.

Baning is due to be sentenced on June 13.
