asked the Secretary of State for India whether the person who fired at the car of the assistant district commissioner of Lahore on the 24th February, has been traced and arrested; and, if so, what sentence has been inflicted upon him?

So far as I know, no arrest has been possible.

Is not the right hon. Gentleman a little disturbed by the fact that there are so many of these cases in which no arrests have been made, and will he not represent this to the Government of India?

I do not think the number of these cases give rise to undue disquiet. In this particular case, the shot was fired by a man who was not even seen by the persons in the car.
