The suspects were caught from near Dwarka Sector 16 where they had arrived to buy arms, said police.
Dwarka, Delhi: Delhi Police claimed to have busted a gang of auto-lifters, also arresting three men on Wednesday being accused of supplying weapons and ammunition to small time criminals in the capital. This included 10 weapons, ammunition and six stolen two-wheelers, the police said.
The arrested men have been identified as Shahzad Ali (24), a resident of Ranholla, Gurmeet Singh (25), a resident of Tilak Nagar, and Yashpal (38), a resident of Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime), G Ram Gopal Naik said that they had received information on 28th July that Ali will visit Dwarka Sector 16 to buy arms and ammunition from one of his contacts.
“We accordingly laid a trap and Ali and Singh both were arrested red-handed. Further, on their instance, we arrested Yashpal on 29th July from Muzaffarnagar”, the police officer said.
Naik revealed during interrogation that Singh used to purchase the illegal arms from Yashpal. Singh and Ali were also involved in several cases of vehicle theft, police said.
Nine country-made pistols, twenty six live cartridges, six motorcycles and one car were seized from their possession. Road to weapons and violence will yield nothing but total imbalance of humanity at large. Dwarka being one of the peaceful sub-cities, is not anywhere close to the aforementioned category anyhow.
