After a journalist shared a disturbing video, a social media firestorm erupted in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh. The footage showed Jitendra Pratap Singh, a Samajwadi Party member, casually firing a pistol in broad daylight from his terrace. This brazen act followed another incident where a man in Lucknow assaulted a cab driver with a pistol butt, reigniting fierce debates about gun violence in Uttar Pradesh.

Enraged netizens demanded severe punishment for Singh’s blatant disregard for public safety and his misuse of a licensed weapon. Responding swiftly, the Uttar Pradesh Police launched a direct probe into the incident. However, the Noida Police have remained tight-lipped, withholding details about the investigation and potential charges Singh might face. Mounting public pressure ensures this story will stay in the headlines until a resolution is reached.

This incident highlights serious flaws in Uttar Pradesh’s firearm control and usage protocols. The nonchalant display and discharge of a weapon in a populated area is a grave offense, jeopardizing the safety of innocent bystanders. Authorities now face a critical task: conducting a thorough investigation, holding Singh accountable for his actions, and sending a clear message that such reckless behavior will not be tolerated.

This isn’t the first time a gun violence video has sparked outrage in Uttar Pradesh. Just a day earlier, another video emerged from Lucknow, where a cab driver pistol attack video raises concerns. Easy gun access in the State?
