Those arrested have been identified as Aslam 36, the prime accused, Sukhwinder Singh alias Soby 30 and Rupesh Sharma alias Bunty Gurjar 34.

The staff of PS Laxmi Nagar had been keeping tabs on the criminals of this nature in the area and around.

Acting on a tip-off about the said gang of gun-runners active in the area. The gang dealt in supplying of illegal sophisticated fire arms, including pistols, magazines and bullets in the entire northern regions of India.

When the lead was developed, it revealed that one Aslam is the main supplier of these firearms and actively involved in selling weapons to various criminals and local goons of Uttar Pradesh and Delhi.

The pro-active team of PS Laxmi Nagar comprising SI Satish, ASI Bhopal Singh, ASI Sunil Kumar and others was constituted led by SHO PS Laxmi Nagar Inspector Ashok Sharma under the adequately close supervision of ACP sub-division Preet Vihar  Rohit Rajbir Singh. Sensing the gravity of the matter, Singh stepped up the efforts and increased surveillance.

Without any further delay, the cops caught all the three persons. The police found upon them, when searched, 3 semi-automatic loaded pistols with magazines. The police recovered 8 more pistols and 42 live cartridges from the bag they carried." District police chief Jasmeet Singh averred.

Aslam said to be the kingpin has confessed to the crime.

Aslam with a criminal past has been a jailbird. After he was out of JC, he remained jobless. He came in contact with one firearm manufacturer from Bihar's Munger, a place earned notoriety for making and supplying 'Indian pistols' and started supplying guns to local criminals on a commission basis.
