The Ministry of Home Affairs on Monday issued a gazette regarding the illegal use of legally owned firearms.
The home ministry stated that several people are working as personal bodyguards and security personnel for commercial establishments with firearms licensed for personal use.
"They create panic by showing off the firearms," said the ministry.
Additionally, any person who has a firearm licence, cannot work as a personal security guard, as per the home ministry gazette.
Mentioning the article 25(A) of the Firearms License, Renewal and Use Policy 2016, the gazette reads that licensed arms can only be used for personal protection, and the gun-owners cannot show their firearms publicly or use them to intimidate people.
Article 25(C) of the policy says no individual having licensed firearms is allowed to be an armed bodyguard to a person or for a company.
