The Hyderabad police arrested a 22-year-old man from the city on Monday, after a video he uploaded, where he fired multiple gunshots in the air, went viral.

According to reports, the incident happened earlier this month on May 5, when Mirza Ibrahim was celebrating his birthday, and shot off celebratory rounds.

Mirza was reported to be an MBA student and the video suggests that he fired around 12 shots from his revolver.

Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, Falaknuma ACP Tajuddin said, “We booked a case against the man after coming across the video in social media...We booked a case against him under the Arms Act. We will take action against the owners of firearms also. Their license can be cancelled if it is found that they allowed others to misuse their weapon.”

While the accused was initially on the run, he was later nabbed by the police.

"Whether licenced or not, a weapon cannot be used without need and use of it in public place is also banned under the Arms Act. We have registered a case against Shoeb under the Arms Act. His interrogation may give us clues about the others involved. The weapon owner will also be booked," South Zone Additional Deputy Police Commissioner K Babu Rao told Bangalore Mirror.

In August last year, an Army man was arrested for allegedly opening fire in the air at Machabollaram market in Hyderabad.

According to reports at the time, the man consumed liqour while celebrating his son's first birthday at a hall in the city on August 11.

After getting intoxicated, he fired four rounds in the air with his licensed pistol.
